Its cognitive-behavioral group therapy has been used as a selective treatment by researchers and has recently received special attention.

The subjects were 36 students of Tabriz University who were selected as social phobic after a DSM-IV-TR diagnostic Interview and a Social Phobia Inventory (SPIN). There were 12 in each under-treatment group, each group was controlled for two months, once a week in a 1.5-hour sessions in which the leader and two co-therapists were also present.

  Results: The results show that there was a significant difference between cognitive-behavioral group therapy and the other ways of group therapies (P< 0.01). There was no significant difference between behavioral and cognitive group therapy (P> 0.01).
