While many strategies have been suggested to treat communication apprehension (CA), no research has accounted for potential gender differences in the treatment of CA. Further, no research has documented the effect on CA of self-modeling. A study identified differences in CA remediation across gender among the following treatment conditions: video self-observation edited to display only positive behaviors; unedited video self-observation; and control (no video observation). Subjects, 308 students enrolled in "Basic Speech" or "Business and Professional Communication" at a regional southwestern university, completed communication apprehension measurement instruments prior to delivering any graded speeches. Results indicated a significant gender effect, although self-observation was not found to be an effective remediation strategy. (Contains 59 references.) (Author/RS)
