          Reinvent Yourself

          May 04, 2009

          In these devastating economic times, companies are closing their doors, and millions of Americans have found themselves out of work. One of the cities hardest hit by the recession is Detroit, Michigan where the unemployment rate has skyrocketed to 24 percent. Dr. Phil goes on location in the Motor City to talk to families in serious financial despair. Find out what all families can do to get through tough times.

          With the help of Detroit radio station WJR, and affiliate television station WWJ-TV, Dr. Phil gets the word out for Detroiters to ask him their questions at the famed Music Hall.

          “It’s one thing to lose your house; it’s another thing to lose your marriage.”

          Watch a clip from Dr. Phil’s town hall meeting.

          Don’t miss Dr. Phil’s action plan for this couple in crisis.
