The authors demonstrated psychopathological mechanisms related to SAD origin and development shows the effectiveness of psycho-pathological approach to diagnostics and therapy. Analyzing the psychopathological approach, the authors revealed that the key mechanisms, which cause SAD, are specific disturbances of target regulation of mental activity and mediation of anxiety during evaluation, changes in the "motive-goal-means" system, social behavior aberrations and distortion of selectivity in mental activity.
