Description:

Social phobia, also known as social anxiety disorder, is the fear of social situations and the interaction with other people that can automatically bring on feelings of self-consciousness, judgment, evaluation, and criticism. Simply put, it is the fear and anxiety of being judged and evaluated negatively by other people. This leads to feelings of inadequacy, embarrassment, humiliation, and possibly depression. A person may be shy to speak in public situations, but there is a time when the "shyness" becomes so severe that medical attention is needed. Social phobia is the third largest mental health care problem in the United States, and affects roughly 7% of the population at any given time. This paper attempts to give a comprehensive review of this disorder, covering all aspects of it,from its earliest forms of development, to all known possibilities for treatment.
