Social-Cognitive Factors in Childhood Social Anxiety: A Preliminary Investigation.
Banerjee, Robin; Henderson, Lynne
Social Development, v10 n4 p558-72 2001
Examined social cognition of socially anxious 6- to 11-year-olds, focusing on ability to understand others' mental states in interpersonal situations. Found evidence that anxious children experienced specific social-cognitive difficulties in understanding links between emotions, intentions, and beliefs in social situations. Such children were rated by teachers as less competent only on social skills involving insight into others' mental states. (Author/KB)
