Fortunately, an increasing number of studies have uncovered important nuances in the development and presentation of social anxiety symptoms and SAD in adolescents and young adults. This book assesses the implications of the research for both researchers and clinicians who want to provide the latest and most up-to-date treatments for their anxiety-plagued patients.”
