Criticisms of the Psychodynamic Perspective

You are well aware that Freudian psychoanalysis in particular and the psychodynamic perspective in general have been heavily criticized because of its lack of scientific evidence. Freud's supporters say that these criticisms miss the mark. The heated debate continues. Read this article by Paul Grey to gain some idea of the main sides of the argument. Then read the article by Joseph Masling to gain a more scientific perspective. (This article is very challenging but worth the effort.)
