The mean value of overall social anxiety in 97 with a standard deviation of 9.46 in experimental group for the overall anxiety in control group, the mean value is 96.12 with a standard deviation of 10.51. The calculated t value (7.062) is greater than the table value. The comparisons of effectiveness of teaching programme on social anxiety among adolescents between experimental and control group shows that there was a significant level of reduction in social anxiety among adolescents in experimental group who had undergone the STP than those who did not undergo teaching programme.
