    So CBT and GET didn't work last time, but that's still what they're getting this time.

    Even more essential is actually knowing whether your intervention does anything at all. I skimmed the audit and they seem to have no good data on natural illness progression or effectiveness of the intervention, but who cares, psychologists need not be concerned with reality.

    The abstract starts off so promisingly!

    (At last, they've finally admitted that CBT and GET are ineffective, and even harmful!)

    And then, of course, I read the final line.

    Maybe they're hoping that by starting "treatment" early, they can prevent the faulty thoughts from becoming chronic? Surely that will prevent CFS, won't it not?

    Yes, I imagine outcomes regarding health, activity, and patient satisfaction are all MUCH higher at his clinic then they are at the Belgian fatigue centers.

    There is no point in reinventing the wheel (particularly when you seen to think it should be square). They can just follow his model.
