Alternative academic theoriesEdit

Attachment theory and agoraphobiaEdit

Some scholars (e.g., Liotti 1996 [1], Bowlby 1998 [2]) have explained agoraphobia as an attachment deficit, i.e., the temporary loss of the ability to tolerate spatial separations from a secure base.

Spatial theory and agoraphobiaEdit

In the social sciences there is a perceived clinical bias (e.g., Davidson 2003 [3]) in agoraphobia research. Branches of the social sciences, especially geography, have increasingly become interested in what may be thought of as a spatial phenomenon.
