Social phobia: common, disabling and treatable

Lampe, Lisa A.

Collapse Box

Abstract

Current research in social phobia is focused on a number of areas of continuing uncertainty: aetiology and risk factors for the disorder, neurobiology, burden of disease, co-morbidity and the nature of co-morbid associations, the relevance of subtyping, cognitive factors, comparative treatment studies, predictors of treatment outcome, and the identification of factors that might allow better treatment matching to the individual. The recent literature pertaining to a number of these areas is reviewed.
