He currently serves as executive director of the Center for the Study of Boys’ and Girls’ Lives, a research collaborative in a partnership with the University of Pennsylvania. He has led research teams that have conducted groundbreaking studies of boys’ education, resulting in presentations, publications, and professional development workshops for educators throughout the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, South Africa, New Zealand, and Australia.
He continues to serve as the supervising psychologist for The Haverford School (United States), an historic school for boys in Pennsylvania, where he has been since 1987 and where he founded one of the first research-based programs to explore boys’ lives.
Previously, he founded an urban youth development program in the tri-state region around Philadelphia, which was recognized as a “promising practice” in violence prevention by the state’s attorney general.
In clinical practice outside Philadelphia, he has long specialized in work with boys, men, and their families.
He has written numerous publications, including Reaching Boys, Teaching Boys: Lessons About What Works—and Why, I Can Learn From You: Boys as Relational Learners, and the forthcoming How to Raise a Boy: The Power of Connection to Build Good Men.
