He has worked in a wide range of private practice and inpatient psychiatric settings, he has supervised clinical interns, and he has utilized his expertise in psychological testing (particularly the MMPI) in forensic cases.

His numerous theoretical and empirical research studies have been published in scientific journals and presented at professional conferences. His book, "Tools of Critical Thinking: Metathoughts for Psychology," garnered widespread acclaim in both academic and clinical settings for its innovative approaches to improving thinking skills. Levy co-authored (with Eric Shiraev) "Cross-Cultural Psychology: Critical Thinking and Contemporary Applications," which became an internationally best-selling textbook. Levy is the author of "Family Therapy: History, Theory, and Practice," which was the first textbook on the topic available to Russian readers.

As a media consultant, Levy has appeared on dozens television and radio broadcasts (including CNN, CBS, NBC, PBS, A&E, and E!), providing psychological perspectives on current events, and examining issues and trends in the mental health fields. He has also worked as a professional director, producer, writer and actor in motion pictures, television and stage. He received an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Performance in a Network Television Series, and he was a guest star on the television series "Cheers," where he portrayed the leader of Frasier's low self-esteem group.

Review:

“The strongest feature of the textbook is the integration of critical thinking and analysis throughout the text. The authors do a great job of weaving this element into every chapter. This is an extremely important skill to emphasize for students of cross-cultural psychology and this textbook would definitely help students to develop this mode of thinking.- Jessica Dennis, California State University, Los Angeles


“Many texts have critical thinking boxes which simply give lip service to that aspect of learning, but the authors have set aside an entire chapter for this topic. Well done! The concept of the exercises also set this text apart from others I have seen and used” - Jed Griswold, Dean College

“Great combination of theoretical coverage and realistic examples. Love all the quotes, Critical thinking and A Case in Point sections!” - Maria Coy, Colby-Sawyer College


“The text does a superb job overall of delineating the cross cultural similarities and differences of most facets of psychology throughout the world.” - L. Kevin Chapman, University of Louisville


“The authors provide both the essence and substance of cross-cultural psychology in this text. It is by far one of the more insightful and well researched texts on cross-cultural psychology. The authors' writing style tends to engage and keep students interested in the topic. The authors' emphasis on critical thinking is also important in laying a foundation for the study of cross-cultural psychology and research. It is therefore not only a great text for students, but also a trustworthy resource for instructors” - Corrinne Lim-Kessler, Monmouth College


“The text blends explanations of the theoretical with the ‘applied’ and challenges students to think about the way life (e.g., literature, politics, religion, etc.) creates our science.” - Belinda Ramos, Chandler Gilbert Community College
