I think this is the product of a biological behvioral inhibition and a psychological reaction to the genuine challenge to communicate effectively while depressed.

I do think that exposure therapy can help create permanent change. However, this change is achieved best in the absence of depressive and anxiety disorders. Both pharmacological and psyhological strategies work well together.

Having said that, for some people, the behavioral inhibition resolves completely upon remission from depression or anxiety.
