Radio National Puts the Spotlight on Social Anxiety Disorder

I’m very excited to be appearing on the ABC’s Radio National with Terry Laidler and Phil Kafcaloudes to discuss social anxiety disorder, its symptoms, treatment and the impact it has on sufferers’ lives. Tune in on Tuesday, 13th May from 9.30-10.30am.

Terry Laidler is a forensic psychologist ( as well as a lawyer, broadcaster, government policy analyst, tutor, communications consultant) so I am sure he will have some good questions for me and we will have a very interesting chat about the various facets of social anxiety.

Given that social anxiety disorder is thought to affect at least 1 in 10 people at some stage in their lives and it is believed that less than 25% of social anxiety sufferers get treatment, it is great to have the opportunity to publicise the condition and how people can get appropriate treatment. Apparently most sufferers who do get help receive inappropriate treatments.
