Objective:  Existing evidence from anxiety disorder research indicates that social phobics (SP) with avoidant personality disorder (AVPD) experience more anxiety and show more impairment than patients with SP alone. The purpose of this study was to examine whether in patients diagnosed with AVPD, the co‐occurrence of SP adds to its severity. We hypothesized that the addition of SP will not add to the severity of AVPD alone.
