          “You need to take care of yourselves,” Dr. Phil tells the women. “Whatever’s going on here is way above your skill set. You’re not trained for this. You don’t have the sensitivities, the understanding to deal with this. So, you couldn’t fix it if you wanted to.”

          On Monday’s episode, Dr. Phil offers Carl a plan to get his life back on track and to help the family move forward. Check here to see where you can watch.
