Michael Shaffran

2012, Ron Hering Awards

“My mission is to empower, boys, adolescents and men to grow psychologically, emotionally and spiritually.”

Michael has worked in CA prisons; particularly at Coalinga State Hospital – a facility for Sexual Violent Predators (SVPs) – where he worked with over 1000 men. He also ran Father and Son groups at CSH for almost 2 years to help men heal from their broken childhoods (90% of these men had no fathers or their fathers left when they were children or they were abused by them). At Kaiser Permanente he ran men’s groups for almost 10 years. This, in addition to private practice.
