General Description

The SPAI-B is a 16 item self-report instrument that aims to assess behavioural, psychophysiological and cognitive aspects of social anxiety. It was developed for adolescents based on the SPAI for adults by Turner and Beidel (1989). Its Portuguese version was validated for adolescents aged 14 to 18 and it has demonstrated good psychometric properties.
