Specific Phobia Questionnaire

The Specific Phobia Questionnaire is a type of ASSESSMENT TOOL.

This is the Improving Access to Psychological Therapies Specific Phobia Questionnaire. It is calculated by the PATIENT choosing a number to indicate how much they would avoid a situation because of a fear of particular objects or activities (such as animals, heights, seeing blood, being in confined spaces etc).

The numbers are in a range of 0 to 8 and are chosen as:

0Would not avoid it
2Slightly avoid it
4Definitely avoid it
6Markedly avoid it
8Always Avoid it

A score of less than 4 indicates no specific problems and a score of greater than 4 suggests further exploration by the therapist to determine the extent to which this fear interferes with the PATIENT's daily activities.
