The aim is to facilitate alternative connections between physical symptoms and patient perception of their symptoms based on creative practices, which develop mindfulness, body awareness, activity, self-regulation and stress reduction, reflection and meaning making.
Thanks @Dx Revision Watch for putting all that together in a dedicated thread.
Helen Payne seems particurlarly "creative" in the way she presents things, and as all the rest of the clique, does not hesitate to hide things and lies.
I started to listen to the video you linked to in @Countrygirl thread and to her big study presentation, and everything is so obviously biased in her demonstration.
That's desperating that such a bad work is promoted in such a way, with terrible consequences for patients.
For example, the criteria for entering the study (p.14) makes a MH diagnosis mandatory:
Referral guidance to GPs was based on the criteria implemented in the pilot study. The criteria were given to the GPs during awareness-raising presentations and in the referral form for example, confirming that MUS was present/diagnosed for at least six months; that the patient was a frequent attendee (i.e. more than five visits for that symptom in the past 12 months); that there was co-morbidities of depression and/or anxiety and that the patient was a fluent English speaker.
