Actually my understanding is that Dr. Phil is a Lifespring grad.
He started this LGAT in Texas based on the Lifespring model.
Although he now claims to be involved with Pathways only as a consultant, he was the seminar leader for a time. I'm sure he still gets paid too.
I actually spoke with someone who attended Dr. Phil's LGAT. From what he said it was very close to the Lifespring model. He also shared with me that he became suicidal during the LGAT, and finally called his therapist from his hotel room and left the course early. Even still, he had a hard time afterwards with believing he was somehow "above" or more open than people who had not gone.
