This chapter first discusses the continuum of social anxiety, beginning with shyness, and reviews many of the complex issues associated with the psychopathology of social phobia, including cognitive features and behavioral manifestations of the disorder, as well as biological findings. Many new tools for assessing social phobia have been developed, and these will be discussed as they apply to clinical practice, including social skills training, exposure-based approaches, and cognitive techniques.
