ASWB Exam Prep: Movie Theater Anxiety

Take five minutes to dive into this question drawn from the anxiety disorders chapter of the DSM.

A woman tells a social worker that she no longer goes to the movies. "Sitting on the aisle isn't enough," she says. "I keep thinking about trying to get out of there through the crowd." When she was younger, the woman used to go to movies and concerts regularly. "It's been years," she reports. "I wouldn't be able do it. Standing on line? Sitting in a crowd inside? I'll binge watch shows at home, thanks very much." What is the MOST likely diagnosis for this client?

Most DSM questions-most ASWB exam questions-involve a process of elimination, and this one's no different. See how you do. Then sign up at SWTP for full-length exams to really get you ready to pass the social work licensing exam. Good luck!
