About the Author

Dr. Ross, who earned her Ph.D. from Ohio University, Athens, OH, is also certificated by the Gestalt Institute of Cleveland, OH.

Margaret established the counseling center at Marietta College, in Marietta, OH. While working, Margaret discovered that resistant students responded well to analogies. Because of this discovery, Margaret experimented using different types of analogies with other student issues. This book is the result of her years of experience of using analogies working with hundreds of students.

Currently Dr. Ross is an adjunct professor for The Union Graduate School in Cincinnati, OH and The Center For Humanistic Studies in Detroit, MI working with graduate students as a member of their doctoral committees.

Several major industries as well as local educational institutions have contracted with Margaret to present workshops on stress, management, conflict negotiation, communication, creativity, time management and assertiveness. In 1988 she was invited to New Zealand to present workshops on stress management and the Myers Briggs Type Indicator for a number of college and high school faculty. For several summers she taught counseling classes at universities in the United States and Canada.

In 1992, she began the practice of T'ai Chi and now teaches T'ai Chi at a residential treatment center for juveniles in Marietta and at the Tennessee Fitness Spa, in Waynesboro, Tn.

Of the many awards Margaret has received she is most proud of two that were given by colleagues: The Distinguished Service Award from the Ohio College Counselors' Conference and the President's Award from the Ohio Association of Women Deans, Administrators and Counselors.
