A New Cognitive Treatment for Social Phobia: A Single-Case Study
A recent cognitive model of social phobia which pays particular attention to the maintenance of the disorder is outlined. Within this model self-focused attention, safety behaviors, and selective retrieval strategies interact to prevent social phobics from disconfirming their negative beliefs about the way they appear to others. The model suggests specific clinical interventions which target each of the maintaining factors and which also address key interpersonal assumptions particular to this disorder. The successful 12-session cognitive application of this model to a 30-year-old woman with a 13-year history of the problem is described.
