The CBT debate, Round 27 (or 53, or 179 – we’ve lost count…)

Monday 19 January 2009

PsychiatristThe CBT debate rages on, with cases for and against coming from all four corners of the health globe*.

The latest in the case against comes from The Scotsman Heritage & Culture. Under the headline banner, “Scheme threatens to waste millions on therapy with no proven benefits”, the newspaper has published three interesting letters: Heritage & Culture: Scheme threatens to waste millions on therapy with no proven benefits

Although the date of publication is July 2008, we’ve only just come across it, and hope that you’ll forgive us giving you old, old news. We’ve decided to let you know about it because the letters were so cogently and persuasively written and we thought that they were worth repeating here, hopefully bringing them to a wider audience.

*Now, here’s something we’ve always wondered: “Four corners of the globe” – how can a globe have four corners? If you know the answer, please tell us. A beautiful, glittering non-prize will be awarded to the first person who can let us know exactly how a globe can any corners, let alone four.
