Question by EMAILSKIP: Does “Dr. Phil” actually have a degree from a recognized institute of higher learning or just from “Oprah U”.
Is he a licensed psychologist? He’s not a Psychiatrist with an MD degree. What real degree has he earned and from what University or College and when was it awarded, or was it an “Honorary” degree awarded so he could “catch up” with his TV fame? Let’s get some facts here on this “crackpot shrink”. Does he do more damage than good and if he does any damage should he be allowed to “play a doctor on TV” and further mess up people’s lives who may believe he really is a Doctor and knows what he is talking about? Perhaps he’s more of an “advice” columnist like Ann Landers and Dear Abby were with no actual “training” other than life-experiences. Anybody “really” know the truth? Let’s pull the feathers on this bird brain.
Answer by J F
he graduated in 1975 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology. He went on to earn a Master’s degree in experimental psychology in 1976, and a Ph.D in clinical psychology in 1979 at the University of North Texas, where his dissertation was titled “Rheumatoid Arthritis: A Psychological Intervention.”
Truth is if he didn’t have a degree, we’d have known about it by now.
I don’t like him either.
