I agree, though I suppose Cort will say something along the lines of amygdala-training or EST and to the effect that Frivold meant to refer to persons outside the PR-Forums, which is all as may be, for my money.
I snip most of what I agree with or wonder about too, to quote what seems most relevant to me:
My main problems with this LP-nonsense and MD Frivold are
- LP sounds to this psychologist as a set of totally sick and false brainwashing techniques
- it is definitely unethical and quite possibly illegal on its 'patients' signing away rights
- it is definitely unethical and quite possibly illegal in exposing children to brainwashing techniques
- it involves a variant of GET (forced exercise for the ill) and a variant of CBT (brainwashing, lying)
- Frivold MD + wife have an active financial interest, no evidence, no proof and a lot of baloney to peddle
And I too want ads for LP as little on the PR-forums as ads for scientology or Uri Geller or miracle cures from ME through prayer. Or indeed as ads for EST or Amygdala-therapy. They may be discussed, of course, but not on the pattern
"Let's all have an open mind and start to seriously and honestly consider the hypothesis that the earth is flat, and that really believing the earth is flat cures you not only from ME and CFS but also from XMRV, cancer and ALL of lifes problems and miseries, and that for a mere few thousands of pounds for the Blessed Participants - and don't you dare scoff, for that is not polite nor fair..."
This LP-nonsense is the grossest bit of psycho-nonsense put on the market for the benefit of its peddlers since scientology, as far as I know.
