Bill Doherty, PhD is a Professor in the Department of Family Social Science at the University of Minnesota where he directs the Minnesota Couples on the Brink Project, which developed “discernment counseling” for couples on the brink of divorce, and The Citizen Professional Center, which does community engagement projects on health care and on divisive public issues. Following the 2016 U.S. Presidential election, he co-founded Braver Angels, a citizen initiative which uses couples therapy principles to bring conservatives and liberals together to counteract political polarization and restore the fraying social fabric in American society. Among Bill’s awards is the Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Family Therapy Academy. His latest book is The Ethical Lives of Clients: Transcending Self-Interest in Psychotherapy, published by the American Psychological Association. Learn more at dohertyrelationshipinstitute.com.
