Dedicated to God’s everlasting, undeserved love and grace; and in gratitude to my wife, Noel, and children, Nathan (and his wife Elana) and Hannah, who have continually loved me and bring life-enjoyment and meaning to all that I do; and in memory of my father, Thomas (“Wix”), who taught me to cherish family, my mother, Norma, who taught me to love God above all else, my father-in-law, Milton (“Bud”), who taught me to respect others and to give generously, and my mother-in-law, Dorothy (“Dot”), who taught me to enjoy the joy in family!
Dedicated to family and friends who supported my long-term commitment to the book and to my parents who instilled their value of lifelong learning and the importance of strong written communication. Special thanks to those who have shaped my professional and personal development, especially the children and families who were the focus of my clinical work, my colleagues in various employment settings, and students who regularly challenged and inspired me. Gratitude to Dennis for his vision and leadership and to Reva for her consistent support and positive attitude.
Dedicated to God, without whose grace, love, and forgiveness this text could not have been accomplished, and to the many patients I have served and will serve. Deep thanks and appreciation to my husband, Bob, and children, Kirsten, Anders, and Ane, whose persistent love supported this effort; in memory of my parents, who taught me the value of education and hard work and who always gently nudged me onward; and with gratitude to Dennis and Karen who envisioned what could be and saw potential in my contributions.
