Social Phobia, also known as social anxiety disorder, is a persistent fear of social situations. Although it is common to feel nervous or shy around others, those who suffer from social phobia experience extreme discomfort and self-consciousness with new people or in a group. They may completely avoid parties, dates, school or work presentations, and even informal chit chat. Social phobia can greatly impact daily functioning but can be alleviated with psychotherapy and/or medication.
