Baby Bear Diagnosed With Social Anxiety
Bear psychologists have diagnosed a local cub with social anxiety disorder after he exhibited extreme shyness around others.
“Sometimes cubbies can be a little awkward around their peers, but most will grow out of it,” says Dr. Jane Camping. ”But a bear with social anxiety may have setbacks — he won’t be able to eat at the cool kids table, or will be too shy to ask a girl to the Spring Fling dance. So it’s good to diagnose that early on.”
