Dr. Phil McGraw, perhaps the most well-known mental health professional in the world, is the host of the new leader in daytime talk, Dr. Phil. Launched in 2002, Dr. Phil provides the most comprehensive forum on mental health issues in the history of television. For nine years, Dr. McGraw has used the Dr. Phil platform to make psychology accessible and understandable to the general public by addressing important personal and social issues. Using his top-rated show as a teaching tool, he takes aim at the critical issues of our time, including the “silent epidemics” of bullying, drug abuse, domestic violence, depression, child abuse, suicide and various forms of severe mental illness.
Dr. McGraw uses the power of television to tell compelling stories about real people with a wide range of emotional and behavioral problems, stripping away the shame and embarrassment that often keeps people from seeking help. Many viewers, for the first time in their lives, develop an understanding of problems experienced by their families and themselves and, in the comfort of their homes, experience the hope and possibility of change. With a strong commitment to research and the assistance of leading scholars and behavioral scientists, Dr. McGraw educates viewers about state-of-the-art and evidence-based treatment options for many of the most challenging problems faced by individuals, couples and families.
Dr. McGraw’s work was recognized by the American Psychological Association in 2006, by honoring him with a presidential citation. Over the years, the Dr. Phil show has received 25 Emmy nominations and won five PRISM Awards, for the accurate depiction of drug, alcohol and tobacco abuse and addiction. In addition, The Alliance for Women in Media, sponsors of the Gracie Award, named after Gracie Allen, has honored Dr. Phil four times.
Dr. McGraw is the author of six #1 New York Times bestsellers, published in 39 languages with more than 24 million copies in print. Because of his broad education, training and experience in the field of psychology, and his unique ability to effectively communicate in common sense language, Dr. McGraw is frequently called upon for his expert opinion on current events by major national and international news outlets, including the Today show, Good Morning America, The Early Show and Anderson Cooper 360.
Dr. McGraw earned a B.A., M.A. and a Ph.D. in clinical psychology from the University of North Texas, followed by a year of post doctoral training in forensic psychology at The Wilmington Institute. Dr. McGraw was a licensed psychologist in the State of Texas and practiced clinical psychology, where he developed a multimodal treatment protocol for chronic pain patients. With his training and interest in forensic psychology, Dr. McGraw founded CSI (Courtroom Sciences, Inc.), a consulting firm specializing in litigation strategies performing a wide variety of forensic activities.
