Dr. Phil to misrepresent Tourette Syndrome on Thursday?

Just heard and saw some disturbing information. This Thursday, Dr. Phil is having on a girl with Tourette Syndrome. The description of the show is so disturbing. What’s even more disturbing is his description of TS symptoms on his website. It has made me so angry and sick to my stomach. He lists crotch touching and inappropriate sexual behavior as symptoms of TS. How are people like him allowed to misinform the public?

It’s all right here: http://drphil.com/articles/article/509/

Did some research on this. The definition he is using on his website is from a book published back in 1988. So he is using research done in the 80’s to educate people about TS. Have called CBS to complain about the use of old, outdated research on TS.

  1. Cautiously optimistic that he will do his research prior to interviewing this family. Hopeful that whoever wrote that blog will see how outdated their info truly is. Fingers crossed.

  3. Actually my 7 year old daughter was just diagnosed with TS/OCD and she actually started to grab her privates under her underwear:( I have kept her home from school because I’m afraid she will do it there:(
