MORAN, Valeria E.; AZPILICUETA, Ana E.; CUPANI, Marcos  and  GARCIA- LOPEZ, Luis J.. Validation of the Social Phobia and Anxiety Inventory- Brief Form for Argentinean college. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2019, vol.18, n.2, pp. 147-155. ISSN 1677-0471.

The problems that affect people's ability to perform adequately in social interactions, such as Social Anxiety Disorder (SAD), constitute an area of study that has gained great interest, due to the importance that social relations have in all areas of performance of human beings. However, there is a general scarcity of studies on social anxiety in Latin American countries, partly because of the absence of instruments built or adapted to the general population or specific groups. Due to this, the objective of the present investigation was to analyze the psychometric properties of the Spanish version of the Social Phobia and Anxiety Inventory-Short form (SPAI - B) to be used in Argentine college students. The results showed appropriate validity and reliability psychometric properties and it also has been provided evidence of contrasting groups and convergent validity. The limitations of the study and new lines of research are discussed.

Keywords : Social Anxiety Disorder (SAD); assessment; college students.
