Social Phobia in College Students: A Developmental Perspective
Stewart, Donald W.; Mandrusiak, Michael
Journal of College Student Psychotherapy, v22 n2 p65-76 Dec 2007
We used the Social Phobia Inventory (SPIN) to identify self-reported social phobia symptoms in 59 students presenting for intake at our counseling center and 119 students meeting a course requirement for research participation. We expected that students presenting for clinical service would have higher scores than the students not seeking such service. Interestingly, students in both samples scored in the clinical range on the SPIN, suggesting there was no difference in mean levels of self-reported social phobia symptoms between the two groups. We interpreted this finding from a developmental perspective that "de-pathologizes" the symptoms of social anxiety and reframes them within an emerging identity context. Implications for intervention and programming for social phobia on campus are discussed, including recommendations to increase the utility of the SPIN with a college population. (Contains 2 tables.)
