Social Phobia treatment through pure self-help and therapist-augmented self-help

Treatment for social phobia (social anxiety disorder) have tended to show good efficacy, traditional models of treatment delivery are associated with various limitations such as cost, limited capacity of therapist/mental health worker and a smaller percentage of people with the disorder who seek traditional treatment. The research paper suggests that self-help augmented by therapist assistance shows promise as a less resource-intensive method for the management of social phobia. Pure self help shows limited efficacy for this disorder.
