At one point in this conversation, I had a person ask me "Where did Dr. Frazer get his doctorate? And this is where I again kind of have an argument. Can you legitimately call a Psy.D. a doctorate? For me personally, I don't think you can. You see, a Ph.D. and a Psy.D. are two entirely different degrees. In order to obtain a Ph.D., you are required to do an original piece of research which you ordinarily write up into what is called a dissertation which is required to show a mastery of the subject matter. This dissertation is frequently up to 100 pages or more.
Once you have completed your dissertation, you are required to stand before a department committee consisting of professors in your department where you defend the results of your dissertation from their scrutiny. Frequently, these dissertations end up being published as a book and/or certainly the results of the research could end up published in a professional journal.
With a Psy.D. all you do is pass an examination and you are done. In terms of respect and prestige within the academic community, a Psy.D. is considerably less. As a point of interest, the Miami Institute of Psychology is accredited for a Psy.D. degree, but it is not accredited for the Ph.D. So Dr. Frazer could not have obtained an accredited Ph.D. at the school he went to because it is of insufficient quality to offer one.
Be that as it may, somebody please tell me how this guy was ever able to become a psychology fellow at Yale University Medical School with such slim qualifications! He's not even a member of the American Psychological Association, although he appears to be affiliated with the infamous AFCC and he is a member of the Connecticut Bar Association without being a lawyer. I mean, why get picky about whether you have a J.D. or not!
I have left messages with Dr. Eric Frazer at his office at Westport and also with the Chairman of the Department of Psychiatry at Yale University Medical School. If either returns my call and provides me with additional information, I will certainly include their responses in this posting. So far that hasn't happened.
Dr. Eric Frazer is now associated with Dr. Linda S. Smith in their mutual business Child Custody Analytics which is listed as being in practice from September 2014 to the present. For those of you concerned that you might face false charges of PAS, I'd stay away from these guys.
