Jeff Garson, a lawyer, psychotherapist and social activist, is a graduate of Johns Hopkins University, the University of Pennsylvania Law School (magna cum laude) and the Bryn Mawr College School of Social Work and Social Research.
A "big firm" attorney for 25 years, Jeff represented banks, investors, and businesses of all sizes. A business man since leaving the law in 2000, he has organized and led a multi-disciplinary healing center and, currently, the Decency Foundation; an organization dedicated to bringing Radical Decency to business.
In his second career as a psychotherapist, he has supported countless clients as they've struggled to find their way in a world that relentlessly pushes them to compete and win – and to remorselessly judge themselves when they fall short.
Drawing on this lifetime of work, study, and exploration, Jeff is uniquely able to speak with authority about the overriding issue of our time: How to create a better life and world when, year by year, the culture's fiercely competitive, me-first values seem to reach, ever more deeply, into our lives.
