The Black "Dr. Phil"


 
Dr. Alduan Tartt, Psychologist

 ATLANTA -- Dr. Alduan Tartt, an African American psychologist based in Atlanta, GA is going after Dr. Phil. "Dr Phil has revolutionized the way psychologists offer help to the general public by sharing his intellect through the media. Dr. Phil touches on so many different topics through his series of books and talk show, allowing him to impact millions who would never consider or could afford to visit an actual psychologist," Tartt states.

 

 

 

And now, in an age where there are a host of media outlets to reach the masses, Dr. Tartt believes he has some new insight to offer on everything from relationship and family counseling, mental wellness and general health amongst the African American community. The Morehouse College and University of Michigan graduate, has decided to follow Dr. Phil's strategic path to positively impact his community and beyond.

 

 

 

 

 

Dr. Tartt is using the media to empower the community on proven solutions to decrease rates of high school drop outs, teen pregnancy, gang violence and increase youths' sense of purpose. In addition, he aims to help women marry by educating them on what men need from a spouse but don't necessarily communicate. On July 31st, he is conducting a seminar that aims to teach single mothers how to raise young boys into becoming exceptional men, even without the presence of a father at home.

Dr. Tartt credits President Barack Obama's inauguration speech as the primary inspiration to expand his practice. "I was listening to President Obama and initially began to celebrate when I suddenly realized that he was imploring me to work harder versus merely celebrate if I truly wanted to help save this country," said Tartt. "So I said to myself, ‘what can I do to be part of the solution?' I then decided to follow suit for my community by studying the ideologies of Dr. Phil because of his tremendous success in the field and respect amongst the public."

Amidst his brainstorming and extensive research, Dr. Tartt collected all of the areas he felt he could add value in and pitched that knowledge to the media. His attempts to make a debut on television and introduce himself to the world happened within twelve months, when he appeared on ABC's Nightline Special "Why Successful Black Women Can't Find A Man" with Steve Harvey, Hill Harper and Sherri Shepherd, TV One's Black Men Revealed as a relationship expert.

He has also been featured on MTV's Made, Keith Sweat's Platinum House of Hits as a celebrity life coach and Gospel Touch as a Christian Psychologist. He has been quoted in magazines like Essence, Black Enterprise and Heart & Soul. Dr. Tartt has also shared his ideologies in over 50 radio interviews on everything from relationship, marriage, parenting, career advice, psychology of starting a business and teaching teen girls how to successfully date boys without having sex. He is also author of his soon to be re-released book, The Ring Formula: How To Marry Mr. RIGHT.

Despite his growing success, Dr. Tartt is not stopping anytime soon and has a lot more projects in the works that he wants to give to the community. Recently, he has inked deals with Today's Black Women Magazine as a monthly columnist, co-starring in Bullies, a reality show that reforms Bullies and their victims, working with recording artist Fantasia, being a featured speaker for Essence's annual women's conference in New York and developing a group mentoring model to serve more youth.

Although he credits a lot of his success to his idol Dr. Phil, Dr. Tartt wants to make no mistake that he attributes everything to his increasing relationship with God. "I prayed nightly and asked God to open my eyes to every opportunity he put in front of me and to allow me to touch the world in the ways He sees fit," said Tartt. "I also hired an incredible woman named Libby Gill, who is the branding expert behind Dr. Phil's meteoric assent." He also credits Dante Lee, creator of BlackExperts.com, for encouraging him to expand his message to the world. He is offering a seminar on July 31, 2010 in Atlanta entitled, "Helping Single Moms to Raise Boys Into Exceptional Men".
