I had the good fortune to initially present the thoughts written here at the Psychosocial Interest Group of the American Burn Association Annual Meeting in New York City in 1997.
The paper begins with a personal introduction and proceeds to describe how Frances Cooke Macgregor's work inspired my colleagues and myself to develop a series of programs to address the rehabilitation challenges inherent in living with any kind of facial disfigurement.
It is our sincere hope that the programs developed by our organization, Changing Faces (based in the United Kingdom) will contribute to the rehabilitation of people living with disfigurement throughout the world.
We especially look forward to learning how what we have learned can be adapted to and disseminated in the United States as we establish collaborative relationships with the dedicated group of burn professionals there.
