Online Participatory Autism Research Collective event: Understanding PDA 20th July 2021

Events

Workshop on Pathological Demand Avoidance (PDA), organised by the Autism Research Team at the University of Nottingham.

About this event:

The Autism Research Team at the University of Nottingham are organising a workshop on Pathological Demand Avoidance (PDA) in collaboration with PARC (Participatory Autism Research Collective) members Damian Milton and Richard Woods. 

About this event

Pathological Demand Avoidance (PDA) has been an elusive term and still remains poorly theorised and understood. While some argue PDA may be a sub-type of autism or even a distinct condition in itself, others view PDA as neither of these and contend that it may be a varied phenomenon. The goal of this workshop is to facilitate discussion on PDA to elucidate a deeper understanding of the key issues surrounding this topic. 

The aims of the workshop will be to:

  • Bring together clinicians, academics, and autistic individuals either working in the field of Pathological Demand Avoidance (PDA) or with an interest in this area.
  • Facilitate discussion about the relationship between PDA, Autism and Anxiety.
  • Develop ideas for new collaborative research projects or professional partnerships.

Invited speakers include:

  • Richard Woods (Autistic scholar-activist)
  • Damian Milton (Chair of PARC; Autistic scholar-activist; Lecturer at University of Kent).
  • Keith Howie (Consultant Educational Psychologist) and Pat Smith.
  • Jonathan Green (Clinical Consultant on PDA, University of Manchester)
  • Harry Thompson (Advocate for PDA and neurodiversity)

Small group discussions will follow the presentations.

  1. Hi. I’m very interested in this session, but I would not be able to attend on that date. Can I ask if there are plans to record it? Thank you for any information.

  2. Hello PARC

    I am really interested in this workshop but I can’t cancel a day’s work at such short notice – so will it be available as a recording please?

    Many thanks
