    I can't remember if the PACE CBT manual includes stuff about 'overcoming a reliance on caregivers' type stuff. I've seen that sort of thing in other CBT plans...

    I just checked the shorter participants guide for CBT and found this:

    Ugh... I really felt dirty reading some of the other parts of that. I think that the more I read of this stuff, the more I hate it.

    More generally I think there would be a real danger that interventions founded upon models that assume patients have greater control over their symptoms would also be more likely to lead to a degree of response bias in questionnaires on the amount of support taken.

    I had a look though the APT participants guide and couldn't find anything similar.

    I don't think it's fair to assume that this would lead to people with APT to make use of more support, but I found it, so many as well post it here too.

    tbh, I didn't much like reading the APT guide either!

    Yes, it's important to point out that the reliability of the whole supposed cost-effectiveness value for CBT and GET from a societal perspective largely depends on participants accurately reporting this one measure (as there wasn't much difference in anything else).
