Ron co-founded The Institute for Personal Change in San Francisco, which provides a structured, intensive therapeutic program for personal growth. Ron’s work is described in his book Where Freedom Begins, co-authored by Marion Pastor, Ph.D. His popular lecture series exploring the effects of childhood on adult behavior and self-esteem are in demand and regularly take him throughout the country. This lecture series also served as the inspiration for the off-off-Broadway play “I Do, I Do.”
