    Keith Laws has had plenty of thoughts on CBT for CFS too. Among other things, he published in the Journal of Health Psychology:

    http://journals.sagepub.com/doi/full/10.1177/1359105317710246
    and made a comment in The Mental Elf

    Some other threads here on S4ME with a Keith Laws link

    Keith Laws joined PR as a member. It would be great if he joined us here.

    Thanks for the links - that one broke though. Here's the working one: https://www.nationalelfservice.net/...itorial-without-perspectives/#comment-1043538

    edit: Although I'd question the value of CBT for cancer related fatigue and MS (on the evidence I've seen anyway), this response from Laws is quite funny too:

    Telling people to ignore the problem will not work for any condition. It may do a bit of symptom control depending on the specific issue but it fixes nothing.
