Update on the Improving Access to Psychological Therapies programme in England: author's reply

  • Sami Timimi (a1)
Summary

Fonagy & Clark confirm in their rebuttal that they have an ideological commitment to the failed technical model of understanding and intervening in mental health problems that dominates current service provision. They fail to acknowledge the limitations and problems associated with Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) and Children's and Young People's IAPT (CYP-IAPT) and offer an unconvincing explanation for why they did not allow some of the vast tax payers' money that they had at their dispoal to be used to implement evidence supported relational models.
