My Dysfunctional Family
Dave Vitalli fixes families. Struggling parents call him when they need to rein in teens who are causing family dysfunction. He believes in the cliche that ``the apple doesn't fall far from the tree,'' so he scrutinizes parents as much as kids in his search for the truth needed to set them on a successful course. In various cities, the counselor works to help families deal with tricky issues -- ranging from addiction to abuse or abandonment. Vitalli uses surprising and controversial tactics -- like lie detectors and drug-sniffing dogs -- to determine problems' origins, then he helps people get a fresh start. A survivor of abuse himself, Vitalli is familiar with counseling families on TV; he has done it on more than 200 episodes of the talk show ``Maury.''
