Since I've found out about this stuff I've been talking to some of my patients, and I find that they usually take very well to the setting of symptoms in an EP context, which seems to make sense to them (probably because it makes sense to me!) and - as you, Jim, point out - it helps them to accept and then change what they can. Examples: agoraphobia people, some kinds of depression, generally anxious folk, some paranoid people (carefully!) and so on.
I have also been finding more colleagues who are sympathetic to this - tho more often they are non-medical people, such as Occupational Therapists, educationists &c.
What experience do other contributors here have of doctors' attitudes (apart from the psychiatrist-experts we have all read and respect)?
