A Response to My Critics Related Papers

Jon Mills, PSYD, Ph.D., ABPP

The author responds to criticisms and personal attacks in defense of his recent controversial article on a critique of relational psychoanalysis. Critics charge that Mills fails to live up to scholarly standards, uses rhetorical devices to unjustly discredit certain relational authors, takes clinical material out of context, and has committed unethical and libelous acts. Mills attempts to show that these criticisms largely lack solid rationale, distort or ignore crucial textual evidence, rely on ad hominem arguments and emotional polemics, and fail to convince the author of their genuine merit. He denies all accusations of professional misconduct and draws into question the political motives and intellectual honesty of some key figures identified with the relational turn.
