Trudie Chalder, R.M.N., M.Sc., (born March 1960) is a Professor of cognitive behavioural psychotherapy at the Institute of Psychiatry, King's College London.[1] She has worked as director of the South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust’s Chronic Fatigue Service[2][3] and is currently director of the Persistent Physical Symptoms Research and Treatment Unit at Kings College London.[4] From 2012 to 2014 Chalder was president of the British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies.[5]

Chalders’ research focuses on psychosocial and behavioral aspects of persistent physical symptoms. She has helped develop cognitive behavioral interventions for chronic fatigue syndrome[6], irritable bowel syndrome[7], multiple sclerosis[8], and psychogenic nonepileptic seizures[9], often based on the fear-avoidance model. Her research, however, has been criticized for overemphasizing psychological factors and characterizing patients’ symptoms as unhelpful cognitive responses.[10] As one of the principal investigators of the PACE trial, Chalder was criticized for misrepresenting the study’s findings in favor of cognitive behavioral therapy and graded exercise therapy.[11]

Research[edit | edit source]

The cognitive behavioral model[edit | edit source]

In collaboration with colleagues such as Simon Wessely, Chalder helped develop the cognitive behavioral model (CBM) of chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS).[12][6] This model supposes that “unhelpful catastrophic interpretations of symptoms and excessive focus on symptoms are central in driving disability and symptom severity.”[13] With cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) patients are encouraged to take on more optimistic interpretations of symptoms[14] and to gradually increase their activity levels without responding to symptom flares with resting behavior.[12][6]

Chalder has conducted several randomized trials which reported that CBT improves fatigue and physical function in patients with CFS.[15][16][17] She has studied the effectiveness of a family-focused version of CBT[18][19] for patients with CFS and shorter telephone[20][21] -and guided self-help versions[22] to reduce costs of the intervention. According to Chalder, the evidence indicates that CBT is an effective treatment for CFS[14] and “the idea that nothing can be done to help people with CFS must surely be challenged.”[23] Chalder has claimed that CFS patients can fully recover with CBT[24], even that even severe and homebound CFS patients improve with a family focused rehabilitation treatment.[25]

The methodology of trials of CBT for CFS, however, has been questioned[26] and some reviews have concluded that the lack of improvement on objective outcomes demonstrate that CBT is not effective in CFS.[27] Chalder has criticized articles that “underestimate” the benefits of CBT for CFS[28] and has claimed that “therapeutic nihilism, the idea that nothing can be done, may act as a self- fulfilling prophecy…”[25]

Development of Questionnaires[edit | edit source]

During her career, Chalder helped develop or validate various questionnaires to evaluate psychosocial factors suspected to perpetuate disability in chronic illnesses. She has studied the work and social adjustment scale[29], the cognitive behavioural responses questionnaire,[30] and the beliefs about emotions scale[31] and helped develop the irritable bowel syndrome-behavioral responses questionnaire[32], the behavioural responses to illness questionnaire[33] and the Chalder fatigue scale (CFQ).[34] The latter is a brief questionnaire assessing symptoms of fatigue which has been frequently used in research into CFS and has been translated into multiple languages.[35][36] The CFQ, however, has been criticized for having ceiling effects[37][38] and other operational flaws.[39]

Psychosocial factors[edit | edit source]

Chalders research has focused on the psychosocial factors which, according to the cognitive behavioral model, perpetuate the symptoms of CFS. These include defensive coping styles[40], somatic attributions[41], unhealthy perfectionism[42], high expectations[43], low self-esteem[44], lack of acceptance[45] and personality measures such as neuroticism[42]. According to Chalder’s research, CFS participants show significant attentional bias for fatigue-related words and are “more likely to interpret ambiguous information in a somatic way."[46] Other studies of Chalders team claimed that CFS patients have lower emotional expression[47], which the authors thought to be a learned response to unsympathetic response towards expression of negative emotions in early life.[48] Another prominent element in the CBM for CFS is fear avoidance.[49] Chalder has stated that while “avoidant coping strategies may help in the short term, the long-term consequences are potentially extremely unhelpful”[14] and may lead to deconditioning.  Others have questioned Chalders assessment of avoidant behavior in ME/CFS as it uses descriptions such as ‘physical activity makes my symptoms worse’, that overlap with post-exertional malaise, a core symptom of the illness.[10]

Research in other illnesses[edit | edit source]

Chalder has developed cognitive-behavioral interventions - often based on the fear-avoidance model - to treat fatigue in other conditions such as multiple sclerosis[8][50], low back pain[51], rheumatoid arthritis[52][53] and fatigue following cancer[54] or a stroke.[55] She has developed a cognitive behavioral model for medically unexplained symptoms[56] and has conducted randomized trials of CBT for irritable bowel syndrome[7] and dissociative non-epileptic seizures.[57] Chalder was for example coauthor of ACTIB, a large study which reported that web-based and telephone-delivered CBT are more effective in treating irritable bowel syndrome than treatment as usual.[58] She has also studied psychological factors in patients with a diabetic foot ulcer[59][60], muscle disease[61], and ADHD[62]. Chalder helped develop a web-based stress management intervention for occupational support workers[63] and The Practitioner Health Programme (PHP), a service set up to help doctors with mental health problems.[64]

Controversy[edit | edit source]

The PACE trial[edit | edit source]

Trudie Chalder was one of the principal investigators of the PACE trial, a 5 million pound study that investigated the effectiveness of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), graded exercise therapy (GET) and adaptive pacing therapy (APT) in a sample of more than 600 CFS patients.[16] While the reported findings indicated that CBT and GET were effective treatments for CFS, the authors have been criticized for misrepresenting the trials’ results.[65][66]

At the press conference for the 2011 Lancet paper that reported the main results of the PACE trial, Chalder said that twice as many people in the CBT and GET groups as in the other groups “got back to normal”[66], a conclusion that was not supported by the data presented but was taken over by news outlets.[67]

The PACE authors have been criticized for deviating from the methods specified in their protocol, without explaining these changes in full in their publications or how the changes impacted the reported findings.[65][66][11] Following inconsistencies in the economic analysis of the PACE trial, Professor James Coyne filed a request to the journal PLOS ONE to access the data of the trial, a request that was dismissed as vexatious by Kings College London.[68] PLOS ONE has since issued an expression of concern about the publications in question.[69]

The PACE authors have refused to share the trial's data for independent reanalysis due to concerns that “patients might be personally identified by releasing their data.”[70] During a 2015 first tribunal hearing on the release of the PACE trial data, expert witness Professor Ross Anderson defended the PACE authors’ decision by making "wild speculations" about "young men, borderline sociopathic or psychopathic" being attached to criticism of the PACE trial.[71] The tribunal considered these claims to be unfounded: it found no evidence of "direct threats", and only evidence of harassment provided was Prof. Chalder's testimony that she was once hackled in a seminar.[71][72] The tribunal rejected the appeal by the PACE investigators and ordered the release of some of the anonymised data of the trial.[71] An independent reanalysis showed that the PACE authors had inflated improvement and recovery rates threefold.[11] Three PACE authors, including Chalder, responded that they preferred their revised version of recovery over the one specified in the protocol, as it gives "absolute rates more consistent both with the literature and with our clinical experience."[73] An open letter signed by more than 100 prominent ME/CFS experts including researchers, clinicians, and MPs has called for “an independent re-analysis of the individual-level trial data, with appropriate sensitivity analyses.”[74]

The role of the parents[edit | edit source]

Chalder has written a self-help guide for young people struggling with chronic fatigue syndrome[75], although she has made some strong statements about this subject. She has written that “emotional involvement with the child’s problem might have the unintended result of placing an excessive emphasis on physical symptoms and rewarding their continuation.”[76] Elsewhere Chalder has stated that in her clinical experience “mothers fear of symptoms and the consequences of them lead them to encourage their children to reduce activities, thereby inadvertently reinforcing the vicious circle of symptoms and disability.”[77] According to Chalder parents can be helpful by encouraging their ill children “to continue with their activity programme despite their symptoms.”[78]

Patient surveys have indicated that a significant portion of participants report having worsened following a graded activity program.[79] In a review on treatments for CFS, however, Chalder emphasizes that “it is normal to experience a temporary increase in symptoms[80] that this doesn’t mean patients are have caused harm or will relapse, and “the symptoms will pass as they get fitter.”[80] According to Chalder, “parents should be reassured about the safety of the approach and should be given support in encouraging their child to engage in rehabilitation.”[81]

Conflicts of interest[edit | edit source]

In her publications, Chalder declared conflicts of interest which include consultancy work for insurance companies[16], payments for workshops and speeches on “evidence-based treatments for persistent physical symptoms” and royalties for the self-help books on chronic fatigue syndrome she has published.[82][83]

From 2003 to 2019 Chalder was a director of WESTSIDE PROPERTY (MANAGEMENT) LIMITED (02067823).[84] She was also an officer of OneHealth (Company number 04364122) from 2002 to 15 June 2010.[85] Co-author of the PACE-trial, Peter Denton White was also an officer of Onehealth.[85] Onehealth was dissolved on 15 June 2010. The memorandum of association stated that the purpose is to promote the biopsychosocial model of illness.[86] These conflicts of interest have not been declared in her publications.
