Doctor Harry L. Forsman, PhD and Licensed Clinical Psychologist worked as Researcher and Lecturer for several decades. He published work within the field of Psychological Measurement, Physiological reactions to Stress and the origin and quality of Self-Esteem. He published his Doctoral Dissertation in 1983, ISBN 91-7146-413-1, and his Basic Self-Esteem Scale is sold and published in a book-form in Italy, ISBN 8879465309. Absence is his first literary work, which in different versions took close to five years to accomplish. He is now working on three manuscripts, which hopefully will take less time to finish.
