Self‐viewing is one of the most anxiety provoking features of social skills training (SST), and a facet of training about which comparatively little is known. In general terms, the major purpose of this study was to make a contribution to the knowledge and understanding of the self‐viewing process. In specific terms, the aim was to map out empirically the type and range of self‐evaluative comments made by students following a period of self‐viewing on Closed Circuit Television. A content analysis schemata was devised to classify free‐ranging statements collected from the subjects by means of self‐evaluation reports. Results showed that students significantly increased the number of positive and decreased the number of negative and internal statements following SST. No differences emerged between males and females in self‐statement responses.
