    Seems that pyschobabble is everywhere - not that we will be surprised by that I'm sure.

    The DWP has been using dodgy life coaches on the unemployed for years. I don't know if Phil Parker Ltd is involved...

    Hmmm... bit interested in Neurokeptic's replies in the comments section, which seem to indicate the sort of moral concerns that seemed lacking from his piece on PACE.

    The growth mindset stuff has actually helped me a bit with studying etc. Not getting frustrated or giving up when things don't work straight away, but soldiering on. It did fuck all for my M.E. though. In fact, if I wouldn't know how important pacing is, it's something that might push me into P.E.M, the soldiering on.
