...should you imbibe in a late night session of pugilism with your other half then come see us.

Well, they certainly call it "pugilism" for a reason.

he kidnapped a kid who didn't want to appear on his show, and MADE him appear.

How can u justify FORCING anyone to appear on a tv show against their will?

The parents probably signed off on it.  They probably thought he'd end up deadinsaneorinjail, and Dr. Pill could help, right?

Anyway, it's all about the ratings for Dr. Pill; anything that'll pull more people to tune in is A-okay in his book.  He's a such a narcissist.

Hey, it was me and Ginger discussing "dr." Phil last week.

I have long suspected he was in some program connected to our particular brand of torture. Last week I was channel surfing and became transfixed to his come down on techniques.

i mean, just how many 'normal' people tell people to "get honest", "dont' give me that druggie crap", and "Druggies are lying when their lips are moving".

these are clearly program classics.

How about another?  The other day when he was berating some crack head, he mentioned someone in the audience and very confrontational like said " John H. stand up"...then proceeded to waylay him with information about him that the poor schlep didn't know the "dr." knew.

No, this anal wart has spent some time in/around some straight/seed/growing together/other teen torture camp trash heap. either that, or he was trained by someone who did.

watching Dr. Phil is like watching a train wreck.  bad therapy doled out to idiots.

Greg- I understand that The Seed etc were based on synanon and the human development movement but do you think that there is some kind of fundamentalist religious influence? ( both on Dr Phil and Straight separately) I once read an old Washington post article on straight in it's heyday that said kids were allowed to read the bible but no other book. Dr Phil's wife is some sort of capital H holy roller. So I wonder if he was influenced so much by straight etc or if he just has in common with them a combo of skinner style psychology and a fundamentalist religious mentality that makes them sound the same.

I wrote dr. phil and wanted help from him? this was before some of my memories came back! now I look back on my 20 yrs after the program and notice that I have sought out confrontational controling ppl b/c I didn't feel capable of taking care of self and didn't trust self...what a legacy straight leaves..inapacitating it's victims to the point of amnesia for 20 yrs!
I even married one who twists everything, lies, states own opinions as fact, and generally treats me how the proogram treated me. Now that I can connect the dots and see that I married the program b/c of the program what do I do now? The program has taken to much of my life already. I don't want to live in it anymore!

No.

The seed allowed you to read the bible for political reasons. Virtually no one did as the culture of the Seed was decidedly anti-religious.  You had to get special permission to go to church in your later phases.

the program was taken and then twisted to fit fundamental religious dogma.  this was seen in countless programs, including teen challenge , and for a time the former straight Orlando branch SAFE when Loretta Parrish was at the helm.  This is about the only way to make the program even worse and more totalitarian, IMO.  that is, to take the program modalities and to make people bend and break down around a religious dogma.

Dr. Phil McGraw and Thelma Box developed a program that McGraw called/calls Pathways.  Exactly when it started being called Pathways (before or after their split), I am not sure.  Thelma Box then named her version Choice Seminars.  According to Thelma Box's website, Phil McGraw's dad, Joe McGraw, was also involved in the original inception.  Dr. Joe McGraw was also a psychologist, but more mainstream.

John Hanley Sr., who developed Lifespring, claims that Dr. Phil uses/copied his program.  It is even listed on Hanley's website as such (an unofficial version of Lifespring).
