Exploration des habiletés de cognition sociale chez des patients souffrant du trouble d'anxiété sociale
|Abstract:||Several theoretical avenues point out that some social cognitive abilities may be affected in patients presenting with social anxiety disorder (SAD). A meta-analysis and scoping review made at the beginning of this project allowed us to notice that because there are gaps in the existing literature, a complete picture of their social cognitive abilities cannot be obtained. This project aims to overcome some of these gaps by studying all the social cognition domains in a sample of same patients with SAD. Results show that patients presented an attributional style bias and a deficit in first-order mentalizing. In patients, self-esteem was positively linked with an externalizing bias and social anxiety symptoms were negatively correlated with emotion processing. This study provides a new insight on the type of social cognition deficits found in patients affected by social anxiety disorder.|
