    Credulous belief in psychogenic illness destroys lives. Society hasn't yet learned the lesson and thinks psychologies explanations and therapies cannot really harm. It's also a problem that the people promoting these psychogenic narratives seem to have little interest in whether their ideas are true or not.

    Whatever happened to the principle that the welfare of the child was the paramount consideration. Forty years ago it used to be in the Children's Act 1969, but will have been replaced by now.

    hmm, and who consistently backed up the claims of 'effective treatments' and helped promote them(?)

    Right there with "first, do no harm". It's in the suggestions box. It's still unopened. Some day, perhaps.

    They just get slicker at selling it and hiding the consequences.

    That is what they really learn from this, instead of what they should learn, which is how to avoid making the same mistakes again.

    Indeed, the fact that they keep making these 'mistakes' after brutally clear lessons from history, strongly suggests less than noble motives.

    There is a program going out this morning on radio 5 live here is the link https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m00050jw

    Sorry on the short notice and not been on here much but have been a bit busy. I have done another interview with Steve Troop that will come out sometime next week.

    On gathering information I found this and was concerned as GOSH have a bad reputation on their treatment of children and I havent got time to look at this at the moment. Could someone look into this ? As this might influence NICE https://journals.lww.com/co-pediatr...IXM3vXT_LTP6H5HUC4n1fHOYm-Ez19B_i21w-XDMCduN8
