Social Anxiety Disorder and Social Skills: A Critical Review of the Literature
Angelico, Antonio Paulo; Crippa, Jose Alexandre S.; Loureiro, Sonia Regina
International Journal of Behavioral Consultation and Therapy, v7 n4 p16-23 2013
The objective of this article is to present a critical analysis of the research outlines used in empirical studies published between the years 2000 and March of 2007 about social anxiety disorder and its associations with social skills. Seventeen papers were identified and grouped into two classes for analysis, namely: Characterization of Social Skills Repertoire (N = 10) and Therapeutical Modalities--Application and Comparison of Clinical Intervention (N = 7). The critical analysis of the research outlines pointed to the necessity of new studies with clinical and non-clinical samples, with random allocation of individuals, with the proposition of contextualized interaction tasks, in order to support the generalization as to the association of the social skills and social anxiety disorder, and to demonstrate the functionality and process by which anxiety interferes with social performance.
