Does anyone know of any refuting evidence for this theory as I'm having a hard time finding some. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The best I can think of is "the psychodynamic approach is rubbish".

Lol, generally that's my answer for refuting the pd approach for anything hehe, that and "Freud was a bit kooky in the head".

Seriously thought, the usual refutation for anything psychodynamic is that it lacks a testable scienitfic base.

Psychodynamic theory isn't a testable one, so it's not a proper scientific theory.

I got your PM. I can't think of any study that refutes the psychodynamic theory, but that's because it's not a testable theory. That *is* the refutation for it.

Theory may or may not be testable - this is debatable and it depends on which part of the theory you want to research. But testing practice is another matter and there is now much evidence that psychodynamic therapy is effective.
