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
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.
Multimodal Therapy (MMT) is a form of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy based on social and cognitive learning theory, and practical problem-solving methods. MMT integrates techniques from a broad range of therapeutic disciplines, and is based on the assumption that most psychological problems are multifaceted, multidetermined and multilayered.
