  • Description

    This straightforward guide is written collaboratively by professionals and parents to give a complete overview of Pathological Demand Avoidance (PDA).

    Starting with an exploration into the syndrome, it goes on to answer the immediate questions triggered when a child is first diagnosed, and uses case examples throughout to illustrate the impact of the condition on different areas of the child's life. Early intervention options and workable strategies for managing PDA positively will make day-to-day life easier for the child, their family and peers. New problems faced in the teenage years and how to assist a successful transition from adolescence to adulthood are also tackled.

    The book concludes with a valuable resources list.
