Communication apprehension is an emotional state expressed as an anxiety experienced by an individual in relation to anticipated or actual communication with another person or persons (McCroskey 1977). The impact varies from person to person but, for many of those affected, communication apprehension tends to be associated with certain circumstances or contexts such as interpersonal communication, public speaking, and participating in meetings and group presentations.
