08TH OF MAY 2022 RECENT TWITTER REFLECTIONS & LATEST DAP DIAGRAMS.
This is a short blog post to add my recent twitter musings on matters relating to Demand-Avoidance Phenomena (DAP) and autism over the last three months. Before hand, I provide a few new DAP related diagrams. There are threads on many different topics on DAP research and literature adhering to typical research and practice standards. I end the blog post with links to recent essays and conference talks. I hope my work is useful to others.
Latest DAP related diagrams.
First is a transactional model for how DAP’s 5 core traits can be developed and maintained.
Second is a diagram providing themes of contributing factors as to why “DAP Profile of ASD” is a “culture-bound concept” in the United Kingdom.
Third is a Propagating “DAP Profile of ASD” cycle. A table of the individual components can be found in my recent conference talk: Demand-Avoidance Phenomena (“Pathological”/ “Extreme” Demand Avoidance): As a Social Construct.
Fourth is a 2D model showing DAP’s internalising and externalising features, versus the number of settings DAP’s features are expressed in.
Final new image is a diagram noting that co-occurring difficulties might be interacting to produce DAP.
