Abstract

The main objective of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of group narrative therapy in reducing social phobia among 11 to 15 years female adolescents. The research method was quasi-experimental with pretest-posttest and control group. In this research, using two groups of test and control, 50 students were selected by available sampling and were placed in two groups randomly. Social phobia was assessed before intervention in the two groups of test and control (pretest) using Social Phobia Inventory of Connor (SPIN) and then experimental intervention in the test group was conducted at eight 2-hour sessions and after the termination of the training program for the test group, pretest was taken of both groups. The results showed that group narrative therapy has had a significant positive effect on reducing social phobia in 11 to 15 years female adolescents. Due to the hypothesis confirmation and the effect of narrative therapy on reducing social phobia, it is suggested for school principals to be watchful enough for the social phobia of secondary school students and develop the education of problem solving skills at schools and design plans for strengthening social problem solving skills and the treatment of inconsistent cognitive schema in students.
