For 10 years Ron facilitated one of the first support groups for separated and divorced adults in the Syracuse area called “Courage To Be.” It was this experience which inspired Ron to join with Mary Ann Massey from Williamsburg, Virginia to published a book, LOVEWORKS: Coming to Terms with Intimacy and Equality. This has been very well received in the Syracuse area and is growing in popularity. Ron and Mary Ann discuss the unique stresses on intimate relationships brought about by the baby boomers establishing equality and intimacy as the dual center piece of modern intimate relationships.
