    (I was going to challenge this on the CAA thread but that has over 1000 posts so I think a lot of people might never see it.)

    As I’ve mentioned before, CBT isn’t a coping strategy.

    (From the Canadian ME/CFS Guidelines Overview)

    Anyway, one reason CBT can be mentioned in educational material is because it’s seen as “evidence-based”.

    However, CBT given by family physicians/general practitioners isn’t “evidence-based” (i.e. even those who are into CBT for CFS don’t claim CBT from a family physicians/general practitioner is “evidence-based”).

    Here is a study on the issue (it may get forgotten about sometimes as it isn't in PubMed):

    Thanks TOMK

    Also, even if it were a coping stategy, why would they assume that everyone would need to be taught how to manage activity levels, stress, etc. Many will do this already.
