In Integrative Family Therapy, Jay Lebow, PhD, ABPP, demonstrates his multimodal, evidence-based approach to working with families. This approach views family issues as complex combinations of biology, behavior, cognition, affect, and systemic factors. Anchored in a client-oriented philosophy, Dr. Lebow first delineates client goals and then uses the most appropriate generic evidence-based strategies that can help achieve the goals set by the clients.
In this session, Dr. Lebow works with a family whose 7-year-old son was recently diagnosed with attention-deficit disorder (ADD). Dr. Lebow focuses on helping the family better understand ADD, determining situations associated with stronger exhibition of ADD symptoms, supporting the family in continuing the behavioral treatment program in which they are already participating, and processing their experience with this problem.
