Brief Biography

I am a native of Montgomery County as well as an alumnus of Montgomery County Community College.  After graduating from MCCC I went on to earn Bachelor’s degrees in Psychology and Sociology (with minors in Physical Education and Philosophy) from the University.  I graduated in 1984 with Honors as well as induction into the Psychology and Sociology National Honor Society’s.  I then went on to earn a Master’s degree in the Socio-Psychology of Sport from the University of Southern California (Go Trojans).  Next, I earned a Master’s in Counseling Psychology from the University of Delaware.  Finally, I earned my Ph.D. from Temple University, department of Education.  I have been teaching at the College since 1992.  I also hold faculty positions at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine and, the University of Southern California. Recently my research has focused on traumatic brain injury, sport psychiatry and ADHD in youth sports. In 2012 my first book was published (Clinical Sports Psychiatry, Baron, Reardon and Baron). In 2013 I was the educational consultant for a movie.  Recently I have had the honor to present at back-to-back American Psychiatric Association National Conventions and will be doing do again in 2014.  I am the father of two sons.  My oldest is in his second year of medical school and, my youngest is a junior majoring in Neuroscience.  My wife is also a teacher.
