Given the title I thought it might be about BPS researchers being brought to their senses
I suspect these delusions are very resistant to any intervention.
Maybe its typo and it should read:
Using cognitive behaviour therapy techniques "by" people who hold delusional beliefs
That makes the rather unfortunate presumption there are senses that can be brought to.
reappraisal with delusional material pot and kettle comes to mind
Sounds like they are blaming the patients for lack of efficacy of their treatment, something quacks like to do.
When I was sectioned in 2014 they told me my severe ME was psychosis and made me exercise.
After I was discharged I made a complaint because they made my ME permanently worse (I can no longer get to the bathroom for a poo), in their response they classed my incarceration as a success story because they saw me walking around and talking to other inmates/patients. They said because nothing showed up on tests it was only logical to assume it must be psychological. My complaints were over-ruled and they got away with it.
Now I have to live in fear that one day they will section me again, making my condition even worse and making life unbearable. In August 2016 I had a psychiatrist come round telling me (without any evidence) that I was somatizing and need to go to a specialist somatization clinic to get CBT/GET.
The expansion of the CBT lobby into medical illnesses like schizophrenia (with disastrous consequences for patients who require medical treatment for their severe symptoms) is really just a turf war between psychologists and psychiatrists.
