Objective: The aim of the current study was to investigate the moderator role of coping styles (i.e., problem-focused coping, emotion-focused coping, and indirect coping) between metacognition and social anxiety related problems. Method: The study was conducted with 435 nonclinical participants (267 females and 168 males) those range of age was between 18 and 35. Results: The results of the study revealed that metacognition was positively correlated with both social anxiety and social avoidance. Furthermore, moderation models indicated significant results for the moderator roles of emotion-focused coping and indirect coping styles. However, problem-focused coping did not indicate any significant moderator role, though it had significant main effects on both social anxiety and social avoidance. Conclusion: The current study provided a comprehensive framework by investigating the moderator role of coping styles between metacognition and social anxiety. Implications and limitations were also discussed.
