    Now wouldn't it be nice if all those involved in this investigation looked at unsafe psychological interventions?? I won't hold my breath.

    "that had failed in baboons, or were tested only on pigs and dead bodies"

    ah well you see, until they start trying out CBT on baboons, pigs and dead bodies........

    eta: mind you, if they did, I'm sure they would still get positive results.

    ...and if they didn't, it would be on the baboons for being on the hunt for secondary gains.

    Some of the responses from medical professionals I saw when these problems were first coming to light were worrying. It's like they were in denial about the problems because they didn't want to acknowledge they were part of a broken system.

    They'd probably just have them as the control group........ ie standard medical care.
