PDA Society - Pathological Demand Avoidance


We provide information, support and training about PDA for individuals, families and professionals. We aim to increase acceptance and understanding of a PDA profile and to improve outcomes for individuals and families by focusing everyone involved on ‘what helps’. These aims are underpinned by our 5 year strategy and its 6 main goals:

  • Research
  • Information/training for professionals
  • Information/training for the PDA community
  • Support
  • Inclusivity
  • Sustainability & compliance

The PDA Society is run by seven trustees who are all volunteers and all have a direct connection to PDA. In 2023 they appointed Elizabeth Archer (known as Ed) as CEO to help them run the charity.
