The Interaction between Sensory Processing Sensitivity and Childhood Environment on Social Anxiety

  • Lars Jaswetz ScienceWorks, Student Research Conference 2016

Abstract

It is known that high sensory processing sensitivity can lead to positive or negative outcomes, depending partly on the childhood environment. It is also known that there is a link between high sensory processing sensitivity and social anxiety. However, no studies have investigated if the effect of sensory processing sensitivity on social anxiety was moderated by childhood environment. The present study assessed that and showed that there was no moderation effect. There was however a direct effect of both childhood environment and sensory processing sensitivity on social anxiety. High sensory processing sensitivity might thus be a risk factor for psychopathology.
