    Unrest is being shown on EC's home turf and a clinician/researcher will answer questions afterwards. Now who could this be? :(

    AFME are involved.

    Do we have cause to be concerned?

    Damned right we do! :mad:

    How will Bath twist this to suit their patient-damaging agenda and personal ambitions?

    Can anyone attend as it is open to the public?

    This will be interesting to hear if anyone goes, what is said. They ought to go over what they write before publishing. "stuying" above....STUDYING. Jen was studying. < Red flag right there...kidding, but not really.

    I can't wait to see it.

    I really wonder how they are going to spin this after showing the film. Its obvious they are going to try by virtue of the fact that the only researcher/clinician on the panel is a clinical psychologist who deals in Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Health Anxiety and...... "CFS/ME".

    Then we have two patients, one who appears not to have a diagnosis just yet and one of who, "has made experiences overcoming the condition", not sure what that even means in English.

    Then there's Sonia Choudhury.

    This is probably the person who is the 'expert' on ME.

    http://www.drjodaniels.com/

    She specialises in psychological conditions...........well, she would, of course,................and advocates CBT for ME.

    What can she have to offer after Jen's film?

    It sounds as if she straying beyond her qualifications.

    From her link:


    I'm not sure that's the prescribed aim of CBT anywhere. CBT is primarily not used to alleviate psychological problems and distress caused by physical health problems.

    It may possibly be used for that if the situation calls for it but I am unaware of anywhere that makes the sole claim that it is used only for primary physical health conditions.

    Unless of course we are going down the line of, "everything is physical and mental as the body and mind are entwined".

    Anyone have any news in this?

    I definitely think this is a controlling the narrative exercise, if you can't beat 'em join in to set agenda and dilute impact/face save.

    I see Sonya chowdhury is making a rare public appearance, usually the £1200/week CEO leaves such matters to Clare ogden whilst she seems solely focused on CMRC duties - that's a salary that would better off fund a good size ME research project per year.

    On Facebook the uni staff said it was being streamed and recorded but pretty vague as to if it would be made available to wider viewership

    What, if by some miracle, that a real test and a real cure was made for ME/CFS? Why they
    (the non-believers/deniers) wouldn't do anything but remain silent like mice, that's what. :mad:
