    This blog by Professor James Coyne is an important one as he writes a critical analysis of the Dutch papers on ME and CBT (in reality CF and their version of CBT).

    When Esther Crawley presents lectures, she informs the audience that the Dutch studies are the foundation (my word, not her's) upon which her 'research' is based. A year ago, I waded through their papers and it was clear that they were riddled with fundamental flaws. Destroy the Dutch claims; destroy Crawley's.........neither are studyinng ME, but chronic fatigue..............unrelated to ME.

    Coyne has produced a sueful resource for us here.

    You could make the same criticisms of PACE ... oh, wait, we did. Its good to go back and debunk these claims, because one of the arguments used is that new findings are similar to findings in these studies, with the implication they should not be questioned.
