About Dr. Adam Cox
Adam J. Cox, Ph.D., ABPP is a licensed and board certified clinical psychologist. He earned his doctoral degree in psychology at Lehigh University, and completed his clinical training at Friends Hospital in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Dr. Cox became a psychologist from a nontraditional path. While working as a fine artist near New York City, he opened a studio and welcomed children who wanted to learn how to draw and paint. This experience introduced him to the joy and creativity of mentoring children, which developed into the focus of his career as a family psychologist.
As an advocate for children's mental health, Dr. Cox is a frequent lecturer at national and international conferences. He has been quoted in a variety of print media about psychological issues affecting families and youth. These publications include the New York Times, Philadelphia Inquirer, Time Magazine, Family Circle, Child, and many others. He has been featured on numerous radio shows including National Public Radio's Voices in the Family and Radio Times.
Dr. Cox’s work with schools and community groups has put him at the forefront of a revolution in redefining how we understand childhood syndromes such as ADHD, learning disabilities, and autism-spectrum disorders. He is the author of No Mind Left Behind: Understanding and Fostering Executive Control – The Eight Essential Brain Skills Every Child Needs to Thrive and Boys of Few Words: Raising Our Sons to Communicate and Connect. He currently lives in Rhode Island with his wife and son.
