He is currently working with numerous college admissions offices to elevate and more effectively assess ethical character, to reduce excessive achievement pressure and to increase equity and access in the college admissions process.

His most recent book, The Parents We Mean to Be: How Well-Intentioned Adults Undermine Children's Moral and Emotional Development (Houghton Mifflin 2009), was named by The New Yorker as one of the top 24 books of 2009.
