About the Author

Richard Wassersug is a research scientist, who got his PhD in evolutionary biology from the University of Chicago, USA. He then spent most of his career studying the biology of amphibians and teaching anatomy in the medical school at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. However, at the age of 52 he was diagnosed with prostate cancer and has since receiving multiple treatments for the disease. After beginning androgen deprivation therapy, he redirected his research to study the psychology of androgen deprivation in various populations. Richard is now an Adjunct Professor in the Department of Urologic Sciences at the University of British Columbia, Canada and Co-Lead for the Vancouver Prostate Centre's new Prostate Cancer Supportive Care Program. Lauren M. Walker has a PhD in clinical psychology, and is a clinical fellow in the Department of Oncology at the University of Calgary, Canada and the Tom Baker Cancer Centre. She completed her doctorate research evaluating a patient education initiative for preparing prostate cancer patients (and their partners) starting on androgen deprivation therapy. She works clinically with couples helping them adapt to the sexual implications of cancer treatments. She is an active researcher, who has contributed several key articles to the scientific literature on the psychosocial adaptation to androgen deprivation therapy. John W. Robinson has been a clinical psychologist and a member of the Genital Urinary Program at the Tom Baker Cancer Centre in Calgary, Alberta, Canada since 1986. He concurrently provides clinical service and develops new ways to ease the psychological burden of cancer on not just patients but also their loved ones. He has appointments in both Oncology and Clinical Psychology at the University of Calgary where he teaches and carries on an active research program.
