When you speak against one form of hate, you speak against all hate...
Psychiatry & Society
Anti-Semitism is again on the rise. H. Steven Moffic, MD, hopes that by shining a light on this topic, we can dispell hatred. Psychiatry tends to stay out of the conversation, but Dr Moffic hopes for a classification of social-psychopathologies for the DSM that would include anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, racism, ageism, sexism, and more.
He hopes you will check out his book on the subject: Anti-Semitism and Psychiatry: Recognition, Prevention, and Interventions.

A prolific writer and speaker, he received the one-time designation of Hero of Public Psychiatry from the Assembly of the American Psychiatric Association in 2002.
