Hi Grams & Others
This post is about Gram's idea of starting a thread about how CBT could be improved. He suggested the idea in another thread about how to make best use of professionals whilst undergoing CBT. I think this will become an important issue in the context of a Daily Telegraph report on the 13 July 2014 that the government is thinking of making it compulsory that people will have to accept therapy if they are to receive benefits such as ESA and are diagnosed with anxiety or depressive conditions. According to the article the plan consists of on line therapy in addition to face to face therapy as well as connecting back to work sessions with therapeutic interventions. I have no experience of on line therapy and feel it would be interesting if there were comments on the effectiveness of such approaches.
