Abstract

Background: Although social phobia in adolescence may predispose to lifelong difficulties, controlled studies of treatment programs for social phobia in children and adolescents are still missing. Objective: The present study evaluates the effectiveness of a cognitive-behavioral group treatment. Methods: Eight patients were treated while six patients were assigned to a waiting-list control group. Results: Results indicate a significant improvement in the therapy group at the end of treatment which was maintained over a 1-year follow-up period. Self-reported symptoms and the number of anxiety symptoms reported in a behavior test decreased in the therapy group compared to the control group. Conclusions: Overall, the present findings support the efficacy of this group treatment for social phobic children and adolescents.
