To all those students who have challenged us over the years. And to the colleagues who encouraged us to continue our efforts to teach about human behavior, in cultural and psychological perspectives, in those who happen to be patients.
In memory of
Elsa Harbeck Boedecker, a Swedish-American physiotherapist who first taught me about what it means to care about people, and to be in a caring relationship with people, some of whom are ill and disabled.
