Evaluation for Psych 101[edit]

This article could be improved by drawing more extensively from the references provided to give a fuller picture of Masson's background in literary studies and his history of invective against psychotherapy in general and Freud and his disciples in specific. Also of use would be clarification about the enormous rift that now exists between the thought of Freud in the early 20th century and actual contemporary psychotherapeutic (and even psychoanalytic) practice, which, while influenced by Freud's digging into the past of patients to provide clues to the resolution of present conflicts, is far from adherence to Freud's original psychoanalytic method, the method Masson inveighs against. --Kevinhilke (talk) 20:20, 17 September 2011 (UTC)


This article could be improved by deleting biased sources funded by Psychiary and the pharmaceutical industry. Namely, The New York Times and Time Magazine. And just what is a more slash and burn argument than this very Wikipedia article? Does the NY TImes and Time tell us why it's a waste of time? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 216.183.185.133 (talk) 22:30, 17 April 2012 (UTC)
