Social Phobia and Anxiety Inventory

The SPAI assesses specific somatic symptoms, cognitions, and behaviors across a wide range of potentially fear-producing situations to measure social anxiety and fear. SPAI results are particularly useful when distinguishing between panic disorder, agoraphobia, and social phobia. This 45-item test is an ideal screening instrument for schools, outpatient clinics, hospitals, residential treatment facilities, prisons and other correctional environments, and employment settings. With a sixth grade reading level, the SPAI is suitable for individuals who are 14 years of age or older. Available in handscored format, SPAI scores can be easily calculated with MHS QuikScore™ forms.
