Research

This research study is titled Post-Event Processing and Anxiety. The principle investigator is Dr. Brian Fisak. This research is conducted at the University of Central Florida Seminole State College Regional Campus in Sanford, Florida. Abstract: This research investigates the validity and reliability of the Post-Event Processing State and Trait Inventories created by Blackie and Kocovoski (2017). Post-Event Processing (PEP) is the negative, repetitive thinking that someone with social anxiety could participate in after they participate in a social situation. In this study, the participants answered the Post-Event Processing State and Trait Inventories, they answered the Social Phobia Inventory, SPIN, (Connor et al., 2000), and they completed a speech task and interview. Blackie and Kocovski’s (2017) PEP inventories are valid and reliable methods to examine PEP.
