Why man and woman are different in social anxiety disorder
【LWBS 2015 01 30 A】 (Hans)Researchers have found that there are sex differences in the morbidity rate, symptoms and comorbidity pattern among the social anxiety disorder group. In view of the social factors, it results from the unequal social environment and the socialization of gender roles. From the psychological perspective, psychological traits with sex differences, such as cognitive abilities, coping style, self-efficacy, etc. result in the phenomenon. In this paper, we review the studies in sex dimorphism of social anxiety disorder, and expect that more attention should be paid to the sex differences in the theoretical and clinical research.（LiveWell-BioScience.com）
