Tension is running high after this election, perhaps feeling unsettling or even dangerous. H. Steven Moffic, MD, in this environment, seeks to explore the so-called "deplorables," who have been loosely described for the past 8 years.

Dr Moffic is an award-winning psychiatrist who has specialized in the cultural and ethical aspects of psychiatry. A prolific writer and speaker, he received the one-time designation of being a Hero of Public Psychiatry from the Assembly of the American Psychiatric Association in 2002. He has recently been leading Tikkun Olam advocacy movements on climate instability, burnout, Islamophobia, and anti-Semitism for a better world. He serves on the Editorial Board of Psychiatric Times®.
