About this book

This volume brings together research into diverse aspects of social anxiety and its clinical form, social phobia, in adolescents. Development of the condition, clinical manifestations and treatment strategies are all addressed, with emphasis on ways in which adolescent development and context are reflected in the manifestation and treatment of symptoms. The book is divided into three parts that review epidemiological, neurobiological and sociopsychological research on vulnerability factors, examine the phenomenology and assessment of social anxiety and phobia in different developmental contexts and discuss evidence-based prevention and treatment options for adolescent social anxiety and phobia. Social Anxiety and Phobia in Adolescents will be informative and interesting for all child and adolescent psychiatrists, clinical psychologists and psychotherapists as well as for school psychologists and counsellors.

Reviews

“This is a literature review of current research and theory pertaining to the development, epidemiology, assessment, observation, and interventions for adolescents with social anxiety disorders. … This book is intended for clinicians involved in the assessment and treatment of children and adolescents experiencing social anxiety and phobia. … It also is expected to be of value to students in the mental health field who seek a comprehensive review of the developmental components of social anxiety disorders and intervention strategies.” (Laura Gavanescu, Doody's Book Reviews, October, 2015)
