Abstract

One rich, yet untapped, source of data about high CA is the thoughts about it of these people who suffer from it. An exploratory study was conducted to examine the possibilities of using the Focus Group Interview (FGI) technique to enable people suffering from high CA to discuss and report on their feelings and behaviors. Three FGIs were conducted, resulting in the generation of information from high CAs about their feelings about talking, feelings about not talking, the relationship between feelings about talking and behaviors, difficulties associated with talking, and reactions to the PRCA as a reflector of attitude. The information generated sheds some further light on the experience of CA.
