Fear of Being Judged Negatively by Others
Social anxiety, among the most common forms of anxiety, is the fear of being judged negatively by others. Many of us have reservations, or are nervous, about speaking or performing in public, but when we avoid such situations, we allow the anxiety to control us. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is the leading evidence-based treatment for Social Anxiety Disorder, and uses exposure, cognitive restructuring, and problem solving to help the sufferer return to public life.
