Currently Dr. Levy's research focuses on the development, implementation, and evaluation of a hip hop-based counseling framework in urban schools. He is currently engaged in additional research which examines the effectiveness of pedagogical frameworks in creating emotional outlets for students in classroom spaces. Ultimately his research addresses the multifaceted roles of the school counselor as not only a direct provider of counseling services, but an advocate for systems change and a collaborator.
