Extreme Fear, Shyness, and Social Phobia assembles a stellar group of researchers to discuss the origins, development, and outcomes of extreme fear and shyness. By selecting the foremost experts from disparate fields, the editors provide a thorough and timely examination of the subject and present state-of-the-art research for psychologists, neuroscientists, and clinicians interested in the development and outcome of these emotions in mental health.
This book is divided into three parts. Part I investigates the development of fear and shyness in childhood; Part II examines the endocrine and neural bases of fear; and Part III provides clinical perspectives. As well, this is one of the only books available to cover the development and outcomes of extreme fear and shyness, explain the basic neuroscience of fear, and document the clinical outcomes of social phobia.

"Fear and shyness are temperamental qualities that have received a great deal of attention over the past several years, particularly within the last decade. In this extremely well written volume, the editors (a developmental psychologist and a behavioral neuroscientist) bring together a varied and expert group of scholars and researchers to discuss the origins, developmental course, and outcomes of extreme fear and shyness. The book is divided into three parts, with each followed by a commentary on the chapters within that section. Part I ... focuses on conceptual, biological, and developmental issues surrounding the phenomena of childhood fear and shyness. . . . Part II ... concerns itself with the endocrine and neural bases of fear. . . . Part III ... is entitled Developmental Outcomes and Clinical Perspectives. . . . This timely book should prove to be an invaluable tool for psychiatrists, clinical and developmental psychologists, and neuroscientists."--Digest of Neurology and Psychiatry "Experts from disparate fields provide a thorough and timely examination of the development and outcomes of fear, shyness, and social phobia. Schmidt (psychology, McMaster U.) and Schulkin (physiology and biophysics, Georgetown U.) offer 13 contributions that discuss conceptual, biological, and developmental considerations in the phenomena of childhood fear and shyness; endocrine and neural bases of fear; and clinical perspectives."--SciTech Book News "Fear and shyness are temperamental qualities that have received a great deal of attention over the past several years, particularly within the last decade.
