  • Since 2005, a dozen of the United States and more than 15 medical specialties have reported a physician shortage or anticipate one in the next few years. This anticipated shortage and a worsening of physician distribution are compounded by a projected increased demand for health care services. Health care of women of all ages is particularly vulnerable. The obstetrician gynecologist workforce is aging and is among the least satisfied medical specialists.

Such research may improve the effectiveness and efficiency of health care.

  • Like phantom limbs that still can be felt even though they no longer exist, the twin towers of the World Trade Center continue to haunt New Yorkers, who – in the words of cartoonist Art Spiegelman (2004) – now live “in the shadow of no towers.” During the first years of their absence, accounts of the attack – including journalistic, governmental, academic, fictionalized, and cinematic portrayals – proliferated. The multiplication of accounts is entirely warranted, given that no single version can fully describe the attack’s antecedents, manifestations, and ramifications.

Certainly, the focus of the book evolved from the disparate strands of my own career, firstly as an academic psychologist, then, as a person-centred counsellor, and now as a counselling psychologist.

Before that, U.K. GIS conferences had been very broad-based, bringing together the entire spectrum of people who created and used spatial data and the software to process the data. While such conferences were very valuable, it was felt that there was also a need for an academic conference where the focus would be purely on research.
