From the publisher. During adolescence, the physical, cognitive, and behavioral hallmarks of social anxiety disorder (SAD) often make their first appearance. Although symptoms of social anxiety are common in adolescents, only recently have researchers begun to examine the problem in this age group. An increasing number of studies have uncovered important nuances in the development and presentation of social anxiety symptoms and SAD in adolescents and young adults. This book assesses the implications of the research both for researchers and for clinicians who want to provide the most up-to-date treatments for their anxiety-plagued patients. Contributors examine social anxiety in the context of dating and romantic relationships, alcohol and drug use, performance anxiety and school refusal, and comorbid disorders such as depression. The unique challenges faced by lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgendered; ethnic minority; and autistic adolescents are also considered. Clinically oriented authors describe the latest techniques in assessment and treatment, including pharmacotherapy and cognitive behavioral approaches. Compassionate in tone and comprehensive in scope, Social Anxiety in Adolescents and Young Adults represents a significant step forward in the field of social anxiety.
