David M. Allen, M.D.: Psychiatrist, Psychotherapist, Researcher & Author 

David M. Allen, M.D. is a psychiatrist, psychotherapist, researcher and author with an interest in problematic family interactions and their relationship to self destructive behavior in individuals. His psychotherapy model, unified therapy, is designed to alter these patterns. He is a Professor Emeritus of Psychiatry at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center in Memphis.

His books for the public are the self-help book, Coping with Critical, Demanding, and Dysfunctional Parents: Powerful Strategies to Help Adult Children Maintain Boundaries and Stay Sane, and also How Dysfunctional Families Spur Mental Disorders: A Balanced Approach to Resolve Problems and Reconcile Relationships. He is also the author of three books for psychotherapists. Websites include a blog on Psychology Today, http://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/matter-personality; another blog that critiques the mental health field, http://davidmallenmd.blogspot.com/; a Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/David-M-Allen-MD-80658565761/; and his Amazon author page at https://www.amazon.com/David-M.-Allen/e/B001HQ54W0/ref=ntt_dp_epwbk_0

My Goal of the Day: My goal of the day depends on the day. When I am in my office seeing patients, my goal is to help them lead more satisfying lives without troubling psychiatric symptoms or repetitive interpersonal conflicts. When writing, I also aim to do that, as well as counter what I consider to be some troubling trends in mental health treatment.

My Thought of the Day: If your family is driving you crazy, there is always a way to put a stop to it without just cutting them off. Doing so is not easy and the strategies that work best are not obvious, so if you need help, find a therapist familiar with family dynamics.

My Action of the Day: Helping others find a good balance between their own needs and those of the groups to which they belong.

What do you love most about Your City?

Besides being the birthplace of rock’n’roll and just about the coolest city on earth, Memphis has all the advantages of a big city without all the traffic and congestion.

Favorite restaurant?

The Rendezvous, with the best dry barbeque ribs I’ve ever had.

What are you doing at:

6:00 AM – Sleeping.

10:00 AM – Seeing my first patient of the day if I’m at the office; if I’m home, I’m on the computer keeping up with my e-mail, with new articles and news stories in my field, and answering queries from the readers of my blogs.

12:00 PM - Favorite Lunch spot/meal?

My colleagues and I rotate to several different and varied ethnic restaurants near our office.

7:00 PM - Eating dinner and watching the evening news.

11:00 PM – Conversing with my wife as we get ready to go to sleep.

What drink do you need to get through the day and at the end (and how many)?

I drink a couple of cups of regular old coffee when I need a boost. Everything else in moderation.

Most used App? My web browsers.

What should everyone try at least once?

I took a week -long raft trip down the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon. Highly recommended.

Where do you enjoy getting lost?

I enjoy getting lost listening to a variety of songs, particularly rock and roll.
