Social phobia is a highly prevalent yet often overlooked
Social Anxiety Disorder: Common, Disabling, and Treatable
This condition is common, with a lifetime prevalence of up to 13%, and one third of affected persons have major dysfunction.
3. THE PRIMARY CARE COMPANION
Fear in the Presence of Others
This is a case presentation of a patient who was treated with a brief course of cognitive therapy.
Low self-esteem is a constant companion for too many people, especially those who experience depression, anxiety, phobias, psychosis, delusional thinking, or who have an illness or a disability.
By understanding the nature of your thoughts, especially your negative thoughts, you may understand why you are feeling hopeless and helpless.
Separation Anxiety and School Refusal
The goal of treatment is to facilitate the child returning to normal developmental functioning.
7. FDA CONSUMER MAGAZINE
Social Phobia's Traumas and Treatments
Social phobia is far different from the run-of-the-mill nervousness associated with stressful situations.
8. CENTER FOR MENTAL HEALTH IN SCHOOLS
