inTune with PDA offers a compassionate, understanding approach to Pathological Demand Avoidance (PDA), focusing not just on clinical aspects, but on the lived experiences of individuals and families.
It recognises the challenges and isolation that come with PDA, moving away from traditional, harmful approaches that many assume to be helpful, such as behaviour management.
We shift away from old ways, and toward fostering connection, understanding, and self-reflection.
This program advocates for a new paradigm that respects the unique needs and experiences of PDA individuals and their families, emphasising healing, acceptance, and the journey towards embracing PDA unconditionally.
Radical acceptance. Radical resistance.
- Kristy Forbes
Our program, inTune with PDA™, guides families through 6 modules, delivered online, exploring PDA family life from a fresh perspective.
inTune with PDA is 100% aligned with radical acceptance and is 100% designed with current research in mind; but predominantly lived experience from a PDA perspective.
It takes families on a journey of exploring parenting, family and lifestyle approaches and tools that help to forge peaceful pathways for each member of the family individually; allowing the family unit to co-regulate as a whole.
