Brad Blanton, Phd.
Brad Blanton is a psychotherapist, author, workshop leader, speaker, and the founder of Radical Honesty Enterprises.
Dr. Brad Blanton describes himself as “white trash with a Ph.D.” Armed with quick wit and an engaging Southern accent, he speaks with an unwavering honesty that is both disarming and challenging, a quality that has earned him admirers as well as detractors.
His first book, Radical Honesty: How To Transform Your Life By Telling The Truth, became a nationwide best seller in 1996 and has been translated into seven languages. The newly revised edition was just released by Sparrowhawk Publications in April 2005.
His second book, Practicing Radical Honesty: How to Complete the Past, Live in the Present and Build a Future with A Little Help From Your Friends, about the relationship between personal transformation and social transformation, was the first cause of his 2006 race for Congress. In 2002, consistent with that same theme, he published Honest to God: A Change of Heart that Can Change the World (with Neale Donald Walsch).
Also in 2002, he published Radical Parenting: Seven Steps to a Functional Family in a Dysfunctional World, which is about child rearing, and Brad says it is the most radical book he has ever written.
