    I and others thought it might be useful to have a thread where people can post any training courses they come across that are dodgy or have incorrect/old/false information about ME or CFS.
    At this stage it is purely for future reference purposes.
    Thanks.

    If you add any please could you give some idea (if applicable) which country its for.


    I'll start with this one I found a while ago:
    USA
    https://www.continuingeducation.com/course/cmez512/fundamentals-of-chronic-fatigue-syndrome/

    And this one
    Based in UK
    http://www.thechrysaliseffect.com/researchseries
    "
    Thank you so much for supporting the Research Webinar Series exploring in more detail the latest research discoverd in the PACE Trial
    This webinar series is a must if you are seeing clients with the multi-faceted symptoms that lead to chronic fatigue and Fibromyalgia.

    As leaders in recovery it was fantastic to see Professor Sharpe’s research published this month.

    His findings are somewhat controversial - 'Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Sufferers can Overcome Symptoms of ME with Positive Thinking and Exercise'"

    Can't quite make up my mind about this one, but I suspect it is on the wrong side of middling.

    Some tentatively good ...
    Some not-so-tentatively bad ...

    From what I can gather, the WVU Medicine program below was adapted from a Stanford University program designed specifically for cancer survivors. WVU expanded the program to include various chronic diseases, including Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

    Here is the original Stanford program, which applies only to cancer survivors:
    If only Chronic Fatigue Syndrome patients were simply "deconditioned or chronically fatigued" like cancer patients. Yet again, medical professionals conflating "chronic fatigue" with "chronic fatigue syndrome".

    Next is the WVU Medicine program, which expands the Stanford "Living Strong Living Well" strength and fitness cancer survivor program to various chronic diseases, including Chronic Fatigue Syndrome:

    UK "online diploma course" for "sufferers and carers" based on the model that ME/CFS is the result of stress/burnout/adrenal fatigue. Hurry, they just dropped the price. :laugh:

    One from the OHC:
    "
    Introduction to EFT and CFS, ME and Fibromyalgia

    Overview
    Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) is at the forefront of the new field broadly defined as Energy Psychology.

    By tapping on certain acupuncture points whilst being tuned into emotions, research has found that powerful releases and healing can happen. For over a decade the team at The Optimum Health Clinic has been developing applications of EFT for working with people with CFS, ME and Fibromyalgia. In this introductory series Emma Johnson, EFT trainer and OHC psychology practitioner, teaches the fundamentals of EFT as used by the clinic team."
