This is the Improving Access to Psychological Therapies Agoraphobia Questionnaire. It is calculated by the PATIENT choosing a number to indicate how much they would avoid a situation because of a fear of having a panic attack or other distressing symptoms (such as loss of bladder control, vomiting or dizziness).
The numbers are in a range of 0 to 8 and are chosen as:
|0||Would not avoid it|
|2||Slightly avoid it|
|4||Definitely avoid it|
|6||Markedly avoid it|
|8||Always 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.
