Don Dyson has an undergraduate degree in communications and studied clinical social work at Bryn Mawr. There, he discovered the real need in human services to address issues in human sexuality. He then completed his doctoral degree in human sexuality at the University of Pennsylvania. While both working and studying full time, he developed a career in sexuality education that included AIDS Delaware, Planned Parenthood, Wesley House, CAI, Inc., and the New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services. From that experience, I moved to the academic world where he could pursue his passion: the training of sexuality professionals.
