Mark also conducts the following group therapies for court-ordered individuals (although many volunteer):
- Parent Education Training
- Anger Management Groups
- Relapse Prevention Groups
- Drug/Alcohol Workshops
- Sex Offender Groups

Many of Mark's articles and columns related to parenting children with ADHD, ODD, Conduct Disorder, Bipolar Disorder, Asperger’s Syndrome, Autism, Reactive Attachment Disorder, and more, are featured on prominent "online" magazines (ezines) and websites.
