    Not important, but I don't think it's been mentioned here before. It would be interesting to do a study seeing what percentage of FINE papers actually make it clear that the study did not get a positive result for their treatment.

    Full thing is only a page, but here's the abstract:

    http://citeseerx.ist.psu.edu/viewdoc/download?doi=10.1.1.363.4159&rep=rep1&type=pdf

    I feel like they've left out the data I'd be interested in.

    This doesn't seem that amazing a find:

    From the paper:

    They don't dwell on the fact that FINE was a null result, do they? Also, they don't say whether making more changes to ameliorate symptoms in a way that is consistent with the model actually led to improvements in self-reported symptoms. Which would seem to be important.

    My assumption would be that patients who got on with therapists and agreed with their model of illness would be more likely to report improvements in symptoms, regardless of whether the treatment was effective. Maybe not here though?

    Would be good.

    Interesting points you raise in terms of what reported.
