The Mental Health Professional and the New Technologies: A Handbook for Practice Today

By Marlene M. Maheu; Myron L. Puller et al. | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

To say that this book is by the authors is an overstatement. Although each author has played an important role, this book is the product of an entire community of professionals, as well as their students and research and office assistants. Contributing various pieces of information at various times, they have shared the vision of advancing the delivery of mental health care through technology. More than 140 individuals were directly involved in developing or reviewing the manuscript, and hundreds more have contributed by discussing core issues on various professional mental health e-mail discussion lists and national convention programs for more than 8 years. We also need to say that there has been, and continues to be, much controversy about the issues. As authors, we hope that we have done a fair job of sifting through the controversy and of constructing a handbook of the remarkable new technologies available to mental health professionals.

If we could give an award for excellence for senior editors, it would most certainly be granted to Susan Milmoe, who has shared our passion and stood by us. With her unwavering support and encouragement, this manuscript survived the vicissitudes of the telecommunications and computer industries, terrorist attacks, as well as multiple injuries and family deaths among authors. Her trust in our professionalism is most appreciated. Special thanks also go to the entire staff of Lawrence Erlbaum Publishers, Inc., for holding true to their reputation of being the best.

Reliable and humble, yet brilliant and discerning, we all appreciate Tim Mount and recognize him for being the research and writing assistant who has carefully crafted this manuscript for more than two years. Without complaint, and filled with wisdom and contributions beyond his years, he has been central to every aspect of developing this manuscript, from outlining to researching, writing, referencing, editing, formatting, printing as well as networking and maintaining several forms of technology to support its development.

Mention of our families and friends is the dearest and deepest of all acknowledgments. Without their inspiration, support, and tolerance, this project would surely have been abandoned long ago.

Among colleagues who have contributed time and energy, we recognize these individuals for sharing their research, experience, and imagination with us:
