Social anxiety is a form of anxiety in which one is extremely shy, anxious or self-conscious when in social situations. People with social anxiety worry about how others view it, others are judged, make mistakes in social situations and execute others (eg answer questions). There is often a general feeling of insecurity about being around others.
Social anxiety at school
Social anxiety can be very harmful to a student at school. It interferes with the ability of a child to have friends with peers and participate in the program.
One kind of social anxiety that is often seen in school in younger students is a selective mutation. Optional bribe students can speak and speak often at home and in front of family members; However, they refuse to talk to others in social situations because they are insecure, are afraid to speak in front of others and are afraid to be criticized.
Students with social anxiety do not participate in the class. This includes refusing to raise questions to answer questions, do not answer when asked to answer questions and be afraid to ask a question when need is needed. Lack of participation has a negative impact on academic performance, as teachers have more difficult monitoring of progress and progress.
Socially worrying students isolate themselves from others by lunchtime, do not play with other students in recess and do not participate in foreign trade such as clubs and sports. These students are often on the verge of larger groups who want to participate, but too full of fear and uncertainty about taking that risk. This self-isolation leads to students losing opportunities to learn and optimize their social skills. By not participating in equal opportunities, students lose these opportunities for learning disputes, problem solving, negotiation and sporting activity.
When students are very concerned about being in social situations, they can avoid getting to school. These students may get sick or they may actually have physical symptoms like emotional nausea, dizziness, shyness or tremor, and interpret them as physically ill, rather than showing their anxiety. Young students can throw tantrums or fail to avoid going to school because they may not have linguistic skills or to analyze, interpret and explain their feelings. Older students can drop school, go to school after getting there or dropping out.
Students with social anxiety tend to prevent social interactions and conditions that cause them discomfort. However, avoiding these types of situations can only fear growing and becoming stronger. These students need to learn how to control their unruly fear so that they can be happy about others.
Treatment at school usually involves some kind of cognitive behavioral treatment. Students need to gradually increase their comfort around others. They may need to start with positive communication with one person at school and then increase the amount of people and the requirements. As they become more comfortable, they can control their feelings and trust in themselves. This process is preliminary and may take some time; though it is well worth it.
