The Social Phobia Inventory (SPIN) is a measure for the screening of, and treatment response to, social phobia.

Psychometric propertiesEdit

In their study Connor (2000) reported that the test demonstrated:

"Good test—retest reliability, internal consistency, convergent and divergent validity were obtained. A SPIN score of 19 distinguished between social phobia subjects and controls. The SPIN was responsive to change in symptoms over time and reflected different responses to active drugs v. placebo."
