Kathleen Prendergast, a Doctor of Nursing Practice student in the College of Nursing, and psychiatric consultant for Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) is looking for participants for her DNP Scholarly Project Study. The purpose of this study is to screen for social anxiety and identify associated factors among university students.
Students who participate will complete the Leibowitz Social Anxiety Scale (LSAS) and be able to view their scores. Participants can access links for information about social anxiety and/or can be provided with information to contact the Counseling and Psychological Services.
Besides providing social anxiety screening for the participants, the information collected will also help expand the body of knowledge on this topic. The study is open to all enrolled Seton Hall University students over the age of 18. Please note that the data will be collected anonymously. A data security plan is in place to reduce any risk of breach of confidentiality. If you are interested, please click on this link Social Anxiety Screening Survey.
