ABSTRACT

Phobia is a type of anxiety disorder in which the affected individual displays a marked & enduring fear of specific situations or objects. Mental health professionals (MHP) use the diagnostic & statistical manual of mental disorders (the DSM) to diagnose mental disorders. The 2000 edition of this manual (the 4th edition text revision, also called the DCM-IV-TR) classifies phobia as a type an anxiety disorder. There are many phobias or specific phobias that exist in the modern world. Social Anxiety Disorder (SAD, also known as Social phobia) is a rather common but often undetected & under-treated psychiatric condition in youths or adolescents.
