I regularly give interviews—in person, by phone, via email, or through teleconference—that offer research-based advice and insights about parenting, education, and topics related to child and adolescent development.
My areas of expertise include youth civic engagement, volunteering, empathy, teen identity development, parent-school-community partnerships, role modeling, social-emotional learning, integrity, resilience, service-learning, moral development, effects of social media on children, mentoring, youth sports, teen risk-taking, family engagement in education, and youth leadership.
Please get in touch by using my website contact form for all media inquiries, including the specific expertise you are looking for and your deadline. I try to respond on the same day, and often within several hours. You can also contact me through Roots of Action or Psychology Today.
