Abstract

In this chapter we summarize the differences between pharmacological and psychosocial treatments for social anxiety disorder (SAD). Using empirical evidence we first describe both psychosocial and pharmacological treatments used, their effectiveness, and their advantages and disadvantages. Though practitioners may utilize many treatments, we limit our discussion to those with empirical support. Then, using data from meta-analyses and individual trials, we compare both treatment modalities (alone and in combination). After discussing both treatment options, we turn to learning theory and translational research and present data on novel pharmacological and psychosocial treatments guided by this research. Finally, we describe how these findings may affect clinical practice.
