Understanding Shyness presents an accessible overview of our current understanding of social shyness. It draws upon theories and evidence from a range of psychological perspectives, including child development, personality theories, social psychology, and clinical psychology. Crozier examines the nature of shyness and its implications for everyday social encounters and relationships, and traces its origins and development in infancy and childhood. He also discusses approaches to modifying shyness and the treatment of more severe forms of social anxiety are also discussed.
Ray W. Crozier is Reader in Psychology in the School of Social Sciences, Cardiff University.
