The Dark Truth About Kati Morton

Subscribe for more videos! NEW INFORMATION: KATI MORTON IS NOT A BETTERHELP CO-FOUNDER. (Confirmed by Kati here: ) Shane Dawson's documentary on Jake Paul has caused a lot of controversy when he brought Kati Morton a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist into the series in order for her conduct an assessment on Jake Paul to confirm their suspicions that Jake Paul is a sociopath. The assessment is incredibly unethical since you cannot diagnose someone without them being a client, or being willing or with the assessor being "undercover". However this is only the beginning- I and many others instantly noticed Kati Morton's lack of knowledge around the topics of antisocial personality disorder, sociopathy and psychopathy. She made many technical errors when describing these concepts. Not only did she make technical errors but she also acted and spoke very unprofessional to the point of stigmatizing the disorders to the mostly young audience of almost 20 million that watched the video. Due to all these worrying signs I decided to do my research on Kati. I correct her technical errors by doing my own actual research of the literature around sociopathy (not reading a "pop psychology" book like she does later in the series) and with a big help from clinical psychologist Dr Todd Grande. Check out his video here: Then we take a look at her qualifications. And finally we take a look at her possible connection to the very controversial company Betterhelp... Also please check out Thomas Arnold (he helped out so much with this video!): Dara Tah Social Links: Instagram: Twitter:


Emanuel Jhutti : First of all: if this video is supposed to be so neutral and factual, then please remove the manipulating background music, and also film during the day in proper lighting so as to not induce a feeling of suspicion in the audience. This all is very biased, manipulating, and not "scientific" at all - that which you preach in the video. Second of all: I agree with you that it wasn't right of Kati to say those things, and it was unproffessional from her part. But I also know that she has helped me a ton. In times of real suffering for me, she was one of the main forces that helped me get back on my feet, all thanks to her videos. Apart from helping me, it's evident that she helps so many people every day, and thus does not deserve all this hate. Sure, she made a mistake, but hopefully she's learned from it by now. Don't demonize her for one improper action. Also highlight all the good she does for the world.

Jessica Francis : I always felt like there was something suspicious about That “therapist” in the video when she was talking about sociopaths she rubbed me the wrong way especially when she didn’t make Shane do a disclosure saying people who are not professionals shouldn’t be diagnosing themselves or others. You learn that during psychology 101 in college

Next Gen Media : The professional quality to this is unreal. Fingers crossed that this goes viral.

Psych IRL : I like your criticism in the beginning, but with a quick Google search you can see that Better Help was founded in 2013. Their HQ is in Sunnyvale, CA and the founders are Alon Matas and Danny Bragonier. Totally different info from her linkdin page.

blestemat : I hope as many people that have watched Shane's video watch this as well. Thank you for this. You said everything I and many others have wanted to say and more.

Kitketeer : THANK YOU!! I usually love Shane Dawson but I'm disgusted about the lack of actual discussion of why Kati Morton was incredibly wrong. The internets mentality of "forgive and forget" is so frustrating, especially when it comes to mental illness. Shane himself has stated he struggles with mental illness to do with anxiety and body issues, so imagine if Kati Morton or anyone else for that matter discussed those mental illnesses with the same immaturity she did with ASPD/Sociopathy. Disgusting.

TheInternet Sucks : My guess is that Shane paid her a lot of money and she was like "ok fine, I'll sell my soul". She can't even handle criticism..

Fawn Whisperer : The fact that she is refusing to accept the criticism is valid just makes it all that much more offensive.

Sarah Fox : She’s a “Hollywood therapist”

ツTara : God I would love to see you collab with nerd city

Erin : "You can feel them" 😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒

Katia : She also spreads misinformation in her other videos about personality disorders. She said people with borderline personality disorder lack empathy which is simply not true. She also says in a different video that they sometimes threaten suicide for attention. Not only will 1 out of 10 people with BPD kill themselves, but as someone who has attempted suicide three times, WE DON'T TELL PEOPLE WE'RE ABOUT TO DO IT BECAUSE WE DON'T WANT TO SEEM "ATTENTION SEEKING." She doesn't understand how toxic her words are. That video at least needs to be taken down, but tbh her channel just needs to be cancelled. (I'm sure I'm going to find more bad information as I go though her other videos) That is all. 😘

Bazsaa Varga : I love how you smashed that integrity pumpkin, and actually criticized somebody :D good video, glad that i subbed

Alexatron : Please tell me there is a part two of this

snail : when is your "exposing betterhelp" 8 part documentary series coming out?

Jessica Carapella : This is so hypocritical and horrible. I can't stand youtubers like this who are always so judgemental of other people they barely even know.

JamJar : WOW. Speechless. That was so well done.

Shenzy Brosee : A) fam, she said that icky and gross were words describing the feeling that she gets around people who may be psychopaths, she was NOT saying the actual psychopaths were icky and gross. B) I agree that her saying that she gets “a feeling” when she sees a psychopath is a bit silly but hey C) the conclusions you came to about her degree is that she is allowed and qualified to diagnose and treat clients Overall I really liked this videos presentation but Shane Dawson had complete control over what she said or sounded like in his video that he was editing. He even said that he made it sound scarier and more evil and that he was sorry. It was later said that Katie has a segment where she talked about how these psychopaths were not evil people but Shane said he cut it out of his video. But you, you intentionally clipped her words together in this video to sound awful and guilty. Thought you valued integrity smh. This video just feels accusational and biased. (Yes, accusaional, I just made that word up)

stormandbloom : Holy hell, The first part of this video I thought nice: some well formulated criticism in a respectful way. +1 for that. But the second part did really blow my mind. God damn man.... I hope you are wrong....... If that's true, dear lord... Halloween did come early this year. I'm really interested in her reaction.

Meg Alyssa : Dr. Todd Grande’s videos were much clearer, more factual, and more respectful.

Aanchal Thakur : As a psychology student thank you so much for making this video! Was waiting for someone to make these pointers.

Tatiana Perilla : I appreciate you looking into whether her program was APA accredited.

L̶a̶d̶y̶ Fox Wolfae : Dara when she first described it, it terrified me. I literally stopped and my heart was pounding. Then I did my own research and even I could find for myself that there was a lot more to it and that some of the stuff she was saying was wrong. I still can’t believe she said “icky” and tried to justify herself 😂

Clementine : It's weird to me because I watched her earlier videos and she has profound knowledge on some topics and useful, practical advise, but not this time. I think she buried her reputation with this one and, more importantly, hurt a lot of people, but I guess she's happy because her book gets more sales and her channel gets more views. Weird woman.

Sam Diaz : dude you’re such a talented content creator. thanks for saying what needs to be said! Ur the goat 🐐


jenmontzingo : You kind of know it’s not a “friend coming over asking your advice” when the cameras are set up and it’s Shane Dawson. Also, marriage and family therapy really has nothing to do with this, it is actually completely based in family systems, like you said. They really don’t do the heavy lifting.

Ego Death : The 1/25 thing was making me so paranoid, thanks for this - not that I'd blindly believe everything in a Shane series ever but I just haven't had time to properly research

Mrs Space Cadet : Oh shit, Dara. This is good. The tea or whatever kids say these days....

Nuuky : oh dang, this is getting spicey 👀👀👀 great video btw! glad i subscribed (good luck with getting more reach, i know u can do it!!)

Roo Hart : This was awesome! Going to share 💪

Patrick Bateman : There you go, back on track 😊

mimogirl 1996 : Ive watched kati Morton before this whole shane dawson thing and im telling shes always gave me a really weird feeling. She seems as if shes hiding who she truly is very well.

crabby bitch : I’m glad someone else saw this. This was my #1 issue with this series, and it was honestly offensive how she talked about apd.

Caitlin Mcdonald : Video on point as usual 👌💯 would love ur videos to be longer I'm guessing u have lots of footage and ur one of the only irish person to keep it to the point 😂😂 but I'm always left wanting more content 💚💚💚

Diane Jennings : Thats some intro!

Chrizero : this needs to go viral. #dramaalert

Iris Jensen : I agree that she was unprofessional but she helped me so much after my Aspergers diagnosis- Everyone makes mistakes

Daniel Jackman : I still stan Shane tho

Michael Fitzpatrick : Ending was powerful! Nice one Dara

Thomas Arnold : The truth

Renee Renee : Thank you for this. I’ve worked in mental health for many years and Am appalled by her participation in this.

Simply Char : Yes Dara. Sweet dance moves.

Sheechiibii Fox : Great video! As someone who was interested in Shane's series as I don't know much about sociopathy, I was very dissapointed in his choice of 'professional'. All the responses she has made to the criticism (hatred, as she calls it) since then has only reinforced that she was not the right person to be trying to educate people on a condition she doesn't seem to know anything more about than anyone with access to google. The more I see of Kati, the more I feel she never should have been part of Shane's series.

Austin Patton : Top notch video I was directed here from boogie2988 channel and people seem to be genuinely worried that she is giving a guy with some pretty severe mental problems these "YouTube sessions". It's honestly cruel to a certain extent because someone like him really needs professional help, and I imagine others on YouTube who are just viewers look up her channel and don't understand her credentials, the conspiracy around betterhelp or her comments about sociopaths, pretty dangerous.

Digital Media : i like your content

Rida Ali : Just as an addition, in the US, American Psychological Association (APA) accreditation is important for things like Clinical Psych, but so is CACREP (accredited by the Council for the Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs) for those pursuing counseling or therapy (for reference, I am pursuing a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor/LCPC certification, and I am only looking at CACREP accredited grad schools). I've checked, and Pepperdine's *doctoral* program is APA accredited, but their masters program is not, and nor is it CACREP accredited. At this point I can only wonder about Kati's LMFT, as she has said some things on her channel that made me raise my eyebrows, and not that I've heard her talk about personal problems or clients on her channel, but I have to seriously question the ethical and legal implications of her having such a prolific and open online presence in terms of her own practice, particularly with the ways she presented her views on Shane's videos. The first thing you learn in *undergrad* is that you have to be empathic and non-judgmental, and she has done a masters+ what was likely hundreds of hours of clinical supervision for her LMFT. I'm not sure people realize, but you could run into problems with your licensure and/or face professional review+supervision if you cross enough lines. I'm not denying that she has helped people through her advocacy, and I'm glad she has given some people a voice, but it is deeply problematic that she, as a professional, is pepetuating myths like this. Also, she is not a qualified diagnostician! Even if she was, it's in clear violation of professional ethics and the Goldwater rule to diagnose or speculate on someone's mental health, particularly a public figure, without doing a proper intake and assessment.

Adam Redmond : Last time Keemstar called you the "defender" but soon to be changed to "detective dara", he has to see this at some stage hahah
