Among his books for professionals are Counseling in Challenging Contexts: Working with Individuals and Families Across Clinical and Community Settings, and Strengths-based Counseling with At-risk Youth. He also writes for parents and educators.

His fiction has won him awards as a writer, notably in 2003 the $10,000 first place prize in the Toronto Star Short Story Contest.

In addition to his research and writing, Michael maintains a family therapy practice in association with Phoenix Youth Programs, a prevention program for street youth and their families, and was the recipient of the Canadian Association of Social Workers Distinguished Service Award for Nova Scotia in 2010. His work has been featured in numerous magazines (Reader’s Digest, Body and Soul, Today’s Parent) and newspapers (Globe and Mail, Toronto Star, USA Today) around the world, and he regularly appears on radio and television. His blog, Nurturing Resilience, can be read on Psychology Today’s website.
