    1. Hans Eysenck shows that there is no evidence backing up most of Freud s theories, and that there is no evidence psychoanalytic psychotherapy or other psychotherapies work However, he is responsibly careful to point out that this is not the same thing as saying that Freud s psychotherapy or all of his theories have been disproven, it just means there is no evidence in their favor so it is not reasonable to expect people to believe in them based on faith Eysenck points out that apologists for Freu [...]
