Abstract To examine memory bias for social threat in social phobics, four studies are reported in which social phobic and nonclinical Ss are compared on their retrieval of threat-relevant information. Study 1 measured standard recall and recognition of threat, neutral, and positive words, while Study 2 assessed retrieval of these words through implicit and explicit tasks. The two final studies attempted to increase the validity of the procedures. Study 3 examined recall of feedback in a hypothetical public performance task and Study 4 examined autobiographical memory for social and neutral situations. All four studies consistently failed to find any evidence for biased retrieval processes in social phobics.
