    Oh this is bad, ""It's really just about changing people's beliefs." Yikes! Where have we heard that before?

    The psyches are spreading their tentacles, is their any condition that they can't treat with CBT?

    I saw a little of this discussed on some morning program, they seemed to think it was some remarkable breakthrough treatment.

    Looking st the latest DSM stuff - this does appear to be where they are going - all based on the fallacious reasoning of 'difficult to explain biomedically so pychogenic by default' and a ubiquitous correlation of distress with illness.

    Ludicrous.
