the dynamic issues of psychology in this new millennium.

today form the backbone of the Handbook of Girls’ and

into a handbook on women and girls is like fantasizing
a feast and having it appear on your table.

The professional practice of counseling and mental health has become
overly complex and litigious. Public outcry over recent corporate and government
scandals has led to a proliferation of litigation and has fueled calls
for increased ethics training and accountability for management professionals.
Not surprisingly, scrutiny of ethical practice has extended beyond
business and government to all professional sectors, including the mental

Psychiatrists and diverse other mental health and broader healthcare professionals
are faced with many challenges in effectively evaluating and treating
persons with psychiatric illnesses and substance use disorders. Resources are
often stretched thin, especially for those with the most serious and disabling
conditions, and many people who would benefit from treatment are untreated,
undertreated, or treated only after extended delays for complex reasons.
Clinicians clearly have difficulties and barriers in their efforts to provide
comprehensive, efficacious, and timely treatment.
More than twenty years after the idea of this Carotenoids book series was first discussed, we

carotenoids in human nutrition and health. In 1971, in Isler’s book Carotenoids, functions of
carotenoids and vitamin A were covered in just two chapters.
Traffic moves slowly in Kathmandu’s ancient and narrow city streets and distances
travelled are relatively short. Currently, there are 3,500 three-wheeled vehicles,
tempos, clogging Kathmandu’s streets. These three-wheelers are the most common
form of public transportation in the Kathmandu Valley. They account for 25 percent of
all vehicular traffic in the city and contribute over 60 percent of vehicular emissions.
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. Primary care physicians such
as family physicians and general internists will be asked to care for more women
who are elderly.
The delivery of mental health services to infants, toddlers, preschoolers,
and their families involves a complex interweaving of skills that
straddle disciplines and test boundaries. Provision of such services is
a testament to the strength of practitioners who struggle to balance the
necessary knowledge base, application strategies, and self-awareness
required by the work.
