Demand Avoidance Phenomena (“Pathological”/ “Extreme” Demand Avoidance): is it a Disorder at a lower diagnostic threshold?
Woods, R. (2021). Demand Avoidance Phenomena (“Pathological”/ “Extreme” Demand Avoidance): is it a Disorder at a lower diagnostic threshold? Online Participatory Research Collective: Understanding PDA. Online. 20 - 20 Jul 2021 The Nottingham Autism Research Team.
This short conference talk sets out different competing outlooks on the proposed Disorder, Demand Avoidance Phenomena (DAP, sometimes called Pathological Demand Avoidance). The talk moves onto core features of DAP, and after discusses why DAP can be conceptualised as a separate "diagnostic entity" (Disorder), and why we should adopt a lower diagnostic threshold for PDA. Finally, I discuss future directions for DAP.

These are slides of my 15 minute talk on why PDA can be viewed as a discrete Disorder at a lower diagnostic threshold. During the talk, I did not have time to fully describe or comment on all slides to as much detail as I like. I can answer any questions about particular slides.
