Arnold Lazarus: Live Case Consultation
by Arnold Lazarus
Watch as master therapist Arnold Lazarus consults with both an experienced therapist as well as a novice, who each present real, challenging therapy cases.
Integrating techniques from a broad range of therapeutic disciplines, Multimodal Therapy (MMT) is a form of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy based on social and cognitive learning theory, as well as practical problem-solving methods. This form of therapy is based on the assumption that most psychological problems are multifaceted, multidetermined and multilayered.

See the master psychotherapist Dr. Arnold Lazarus apply his Multimodal Therapy model as he consults with two clinicians:
  • Jurgen, an experienced psychodynamic-oriented psychotherapist, presents the case of a recently divorced 38-year-old woman who constantly pulls him to put out fires.
  • Marlou, a new psychotherapist, presents the case of a mother who is struggling to connect with her teenage foster son.

"My basic approach to therapy is very much that of problem solving. I see that people come into therapy with a whole myriad of different problems, and yet do not know how to solve some simple ones. And quite often simple solutions can have a tremendous, reverberating, positive effect." -- Arnold Lazarus
