A Pre-experimental study was conducted among adolescents of selected School, New Delhi. The study aims to identify the incidence of social anxiety among adolescents and assess the effectiveness of Jacobson?s Progressive Muscle Relaxation (JPMR)Technique on social anxiety among adolescents. The objectives of the study were: To identify the incidence of social anxiety among the adolescents, to find the association between social anxiety and selected demographic variables, to assess the effectiveness of Jacobson?s Progressive Muscle Relaxation Technique on social anxiety in terms of anxiety score, to find the relationship between social anxiety and its associated factors (parental strictness, parental conflicts, peer rejection, teacher?s strictness). Quantitative research approach was adopted for the present study. The study was conducted in two phases, the study design used for Phase -I was descriptive survey and Phase-II was pre-experimental one group pre-test post-test design. In Phase-I 200 adolescents were enrolled for the study using purposive sampling technique and 74 adolescents were identified with social anxiety with the help of Liebowitz Social Anxiety Scale (LSAS) and structured questionnaire related to social anxiety and its associated factors. 50 adolescents were selected using simple random technique (lottery method) in Phase-II of study. Jacobson?s Progressive Muscle Relaxation Technique was administered for 30 mins for 4 consecutive days to adolescents with social anxiety. Post-test was administered on 5th day using Liebowitz Social Anxiety Scale (LSAS). The study results revealed that out of 200 adolescents 6(3%) had severe social anxiety, 50(25.5%) had marked social anxiety, 18(9%) had moderated social anxiety and 126(62.5%) had no social anxiety. The calculated „z? score value found to be 23.587 which was greater than the table value (2.009) indicates the intervention of Jacobson?s Progressive Muscle Relaxation Technique was effective on reducing the social anxiety among adolescents.
