Exploring Associations between Pathological Demand Avoidance, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and Personality


We are looking for participants to take part in a research project looking at personality traits, thoughts and behaviour in people with Pathological Demand Avoidance (PDA), Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD).

The purpose of this study is to explore the personality profile of people with PDA, ASD and OCD in order to identify similarities and differences between them. This will be help to understanding PDA as a condition, and any relationships with OCD, ASD and personality. PDA is currently not well understood, and this research could help to develop interventions to support those living with the condition.

You will be asked to complete a questionnaire about your personality. The questionnaire will take about 30 minutes to complete. All information collected will be anonymous - no personal information will be collected.
