We have become aware of a (Norwegian) piece on the site psykologisk.no, by FAFO-researchers Kielland and Grønningseter, titled “It’s not Lightning Process the ME-struck are afraid of – it’s NAV” (our translation). (NAV is the Norwegian public work and pensions authority.)
We might differ a little on whether that’s entirely true (we are a bit “afraid” of Lightning Process too), but the basic message of the piece is correct, namely that it’s pretty scary when the work and pensions authority put pressure on ME-patients to participate in a program that can be harmful. (We still maintain that the LP can be quite harmful in itself, which is amply documented on our site.) But a good, professional and supportive piece from these researchers. (use google translate if you want to read it)
What was an extra suprise for us is that LP-fortellinger.no is linked in their article. Thanks for this!
