Liebowitz Social Anxiety Scale (LSAS)

Introduction[ edit ] To assess social phobia, psychologists and clinicians need to distinguish between performance anxiety and social interaction anxiety in order to make an accurate diagnosis. However, lack of empirical data made it difficult to differentiate and relate different types of feared situations and social interactions. Since its invention, the LSAS has been used in many cognitive-behavioral treatments of social phobia. The LSAS is the most frequently used form of social anxiety assessment in research, clinical-based, and pharmacotherapy studies. The 24 items are first rated on a Likert Scale from 0 to 3 on fear felt during the situations, and then the same items are rated regarding avoidance of the situation. The clinician administered version of the test has four more subscale scores, which the self-administered test does not have.
