About the Author

private counseling with two convenient office locations for individuals, families, couples, school-age children and teens. (*Note that this web site is basically about her training/consulting work so please go to the 'counseling' page for more information on her private practice*)
Among Sharon's many professional achievements is her PEER PRESSURE REVERSAL program--one of the most highly respected refusal skills programs for children and teens in the nation--which she has personally brought to over one million people across the U.S. and in Australia, Africa, Switzerland, Spain, Canada, Malaysia, Turkey, and Micronesia. Her nine widely acclaimed books include an elementary-series that she 'co-authored' with Nicholas, her savvy Cocker Spaniel! Her guide for teens, "How to Say No and Keep Your Friends, 2nd Edition," became a bestseller.
Prior to opening her company, LifeSkills for Positive Living, in 1980, Sharon served as director of the Dallas, Texas Police Department's First Offender Program which became a national model for delinquency prevention. She was also a social worker for Dallas County Department of Human Services counseling thousands of troubled families.
Sharon Scott has been honored with numerous awards including the prestigious 2001 "Molly Gerold Human Rights Award" given by the 6,000 member Texas Counseling Association and is the only three-time recipient of their "Professional Writing Award." A frequent TV and radio talk-show guest, she has appeared on CNN and Good Morning Australia and has been quoted by hundreds of media sources including 20/20, Good Housekeeping Magazine, Seventeen, The Washington Post, the Associated Press, Teen Magazine, the British Broadcasting Co., Working Mothers Magazine, Scholastic Choices, The Dallas Morning News, The London Times, and Redbook.
She is a clinical member of the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy and a past president of Northern Metro Counseling Association.
