Social Anxiety

Social anxiety is characterized by intense fear or anxiety of being judged while interacting with others.

Social Anxiety Disorder in Adults

People who suffer from Social Anxiety Disorder, also known as social phobia, become very anxious interacting with others. This may include large groups, meeting new people, and/or engaging in casual conversation. The anxiety is usually related to fear of being judged or viewed negatively because of the anxiety, which can lead to intense embarrassment. People with Social Anxiety Disorder may have physical manifestations such as cold sweats, racing heart, shaking or trembling, flushing, and stomach upset. Social situations become filled with overwhelming fear or avoided altogether.
