I think we went over this in detail here

Social phobia

Quote:
The following conditions are covered by the term, "social phobia":
Social anxiety disorder, a diagnosis referring to clinically excessive social anxiety
Social anxiety, the experience of anxiety (emotional discomfort, fear, apprehension, or worry) regarding social situations in general
Specific social phobia, social anxiety occurring only in specific situations, such as a fear of public speaking
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Social_anxiety_disorder

Quote:
Research has shown that cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) can be highly effective for several anxiety disorders, particularly specific phobias, panic disorder and social anxiety disorder.
Quote:
Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), a class of antidepressants, are considered by many to be the first choice medication for generalized social phobia.
