    Here is the apt participant manual ( I don't seem to have a copy of the therapist's manual for APT):

    Oops - I thought they'd all been uploaded to MEpedia. After the one woolie posted, looks like these are the only two missing now.

    Here's a complete set so anyone getting to here doesn't need to go further. These were downloaded in April 2011.

    Thank you @BruceInOz -very useful. Seems Prof Sharpe wasn't aware they were now behind a login. He says he's going to ask QMUL.

    This sounds like a circular justification to me, because surely they used a definition most likely to show more favourable results with subjective outcomes. Or am I missing something?

    Oh! So only some of the documents are still available. Meh.
    Too late to think now, I'll look again tomorrow.

    Did they ONLY put up the therapist manuals for each of the four trial arms? But not the other documents? It would seem daft not to have all available. Gah.

    It looks like the therapist and participant guides are up, but those couple of additional things are not.
