About Dan Gottlieb
Daniel Gottlieb, Ph.D., aka Dr. Dan, is a practicing psychologist and therapist with more than 40 years of experience. Best known as the host of "Voices in the Family," a weekly radio program heard on WHYY-FM, Philadelphia’s NPR affiliate. He is also the author of six books, including his latest, The Wisdom We're Born With.

Dr. Dan began his family therapist practice in 1969 after receiving undergraduate and graduate degrees at Temple University. In 1979, Dan was in a near fatal automobile accident which left him paralyzed from the chest down.

Through personal and professional experience, Dan has learned that our greatest suffering is alienation and loneliness. That is these powerful emotions can produce prejudice, hatred, violence, withdrawal and depression. He has learned that all humans long for human contact, compassion and understanding. And without compassion, our spirits wither.

When asked to summarize his life's work, he says simply: “I teach kindness.”
