    Elenor Stein goes against the clique of Psychiatry. I have felt she is on our side all the way and works to separate typical Psychiatry takes on ME vs Depression based patients. In other words she weeds out the Bunk that we hear all the time from the Psychiarty Docs.and reseach coming from them.. So It doesn't surprise me that she would take the time to follow up on this work in terms of Patients and their Medical personel relationships. I have not read this paper yet but will do so tonight.

    But it's still all just about flannelling the patients!
    Listen to them, :thumbsup: validate their feelings, :thumbsup: admit there is controversy :p ...

    before going on to impose your own beliefs in the psychosocial model.:devil:
