Description: For individuals with Social Anxiety Disorder, the Dopaminergic Engagement Cycle might involve anxiety specifically related to social situations or interactions. Curiosity may lead to exploration and discovery, but the fear of social judgment or interaction could create discomfort at various stages of the cycle. This anxiety may impact the individual’s ability to engage in activities, feel satisfaction, or connect with others. To improve the cycle, SAD individuals may benefit from therapy, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), social skills training, or medication to manage their anxiety.
