Many expert practitioners are also acknowledged for their invaluable suggestions and contributions.
A number of individuals offered valuable help with this book. Dr. Ruth B.

Many thanks to several graduate research assistants, especially Olivia Boyce, Euehun Lee, Jill Hull, Munshik Suh, Dong Chul Han, and Kyoung Park, who bore the burden of questionnaire coding, data analysis of the study reported, and manuscript development and proofreading. I thank other students who assisted, namely Laura Maurice, Ann Carlton, Susan Jewell, Bettina May, and Albert Weston. Thanks also to Lynne Feduik Goetz for her editorial assistance.
