Social Anxiety Study Posted on Website

A study by UMaine psychiatrists linking social anxiety to dating aggression was posted on the Medical Xpress website. The study, which was published in the Journal of Interpersonal Violence, found young men with social anxiety, especially a fear of being judged negatively by others, are more likely to engage in personal and psychological dating aggression. UMaine Professor of Psychology Douglas Nangle and a former UMaine graduate student led the research.
