Research and Presentations

The publications listed here report research carried out by The Shyness Institute. The Shyness Institute is a non-profit research institution dedicated to research regarding shyness, social anxiety, and related anxiety disorders.

A central focus of this work is the development of The Social Fitness Model, which views capabilities in demanding social situations as analogous to capabilities in demanding physical situations: one needs to get and remain fit if one expects to be able to function. Social fitness is achieved through practice.
