The study was conducted with the participation of 84 university students who display symptoms of social anxiety. The participants were randomly assigned into two groups; cognitive bias manipulation group (D) and placebo-control group (DP). The participants in group D took part in an attentional and interpretational bias manipulation study that was conducted through a computer in eight sessions, being twice a week. On the other hand, the participants in group DP attended a similar study with the one that group D attended, where no manipulation is carried out. The levels of social anxiety, anxiety, depression, nonfunctional thinking, attentional and interpretational bias of the participants were evaluated. The result of analysis reveals that social anxiety level, which is the basic measure of this study, significantly decreased in the D group compared with the DP group; however, this effect was not preserved in the follow up measurements. The findings are discussed.
