 Abstract

Statement of the problem In a school setting, the stress, frustration and trauma of being socially anxious amidst other individuals could be devastating and detrimental to the psychological well-being of adolescents. Socially anxious adolescents often are unable to function adequately with peers and significant others.  They are at risk for several forms of concurrent and subsequent maladjustment such as poor relationship. Thus, the impact of social anxiety on the developmental life span of adolescents is quite terrifying and painful as the experience of social anxiety among adolescent appears to be highly handicapping and create maladjustment in most aspects of their life such as social, intellectual personality and academic achievement.  On this basis therefore, this study intends to use Acceptance and Commitment Therapy for the treatment of social anxiety among adolescents in secondary schools in the rural area of Oyo state, Nigeria.
