Public Speaking Anxiety in College Students Is Common and Specific
Poster Session VII - Board: VII-
We investigated public speaking anxiety (PSA) and generalized anxiety in college students using self-report measures. PSA was reportedly present in 60% of students. As predicted, PSA was positively correlated with generalized anxiety, yet this correlation was weak. Most students with generalized anxiety also had PSA, whereas most students with PSA did not have generalized anxiety.
