abstract

  • Twenty-two patients meeting a primary DSM-III-R diagnosis of Social Phobia, entered a 12 week open trial of sertraline. Twenty patients completed at least 8 weeks of treatment. Sixteen patients (80%) were considered responders and 4 (20%) were considered non-responders. All measures of social anxiety and avoidance, depression and social functioning showed a statistically significant change from baseline to end point.
