Phillip Calvin McGraw, better known as Dr. Phil, is an American psychologist, author and currently the host of his own television show. He became a celebrity in the late 1990s, when he appeared on The Oprah Winfrey Show.
The technique of Dr. Phil, which differs considerably from traditional psychology, has been criticized by those inside and outside the profession. He never liked traditional counseling, and was awkward in one on one situation. Dr. Phil does not emphasize discovering the cause of emotional distress earlier in life, and instead focuses on behavior modification therapy - that is, changing a behavior without necessarily investing time in discovering the cause of an unwanted behavior.
Several years ago, Dr. Phil was ranked fourth on thephoenix.com's list of the "100 unsexiest men in the world". However, he is an avid scuba diver, golfer and tennis player. Dr. Phil is also the father-in-law of 1998 Playboy Playmate Erica Dahm, who is married to his son Jay.
