The Interrelationship of Social Anxiety with Anxiety, Depression, Locus of Control, Ways of Coping and Ego Strength amongst University Students
Shepherd, Robin-Marie; Edelman, Robert J.
College Quarterly, v12 n2 Spr 2009
This is the first study to investigate the interrelationship of social anxiety with the variables anxiety, depression, locus of control, ego strength and ways of coping in a sample of university students. There were high scores of social anxiety which were related to high scores on measures of anxiety and depression, low ego strength, external locus of control and emotion coping rather than problem focused coping. While the results are relational rather than being predictive of causality they raise a number of issues with regard to theory, prevention, intervention and promoting mental health within a university setting.
