Social Phobia Directory

Social phobia is a type of anxiety disorder that makes a person feel self-conscious and anxious when in certain social situations. A person with social phobia may have difficulty speaking or eating in front of others because of fears of being judged, embarrassed, or watched too closely. Severe social phobias may cause a person to avoid others entirely, which can interfere with work and family. Social phobia, also called social anxiety disorder, affects about 15 million American adults.
