Marquis serves in various editorial roles for national publications, including the Journal of Psychotherapy Integration, the Journal of Unified Psychotherapy and Clinical Practice, and the Journal of Integral Theory and Practice, and is on the advisory board of the Unified Psychotherapy Project. He has taught more than 20 different courses in psychology, counseling, and human development.
