Description
							We all have the tendency to sit on our high horses and proclaim how progressive and civilized we've become. However, the reality is that stigmatization is experienced in the United States both publicly and privately every day. And, if we are honest, each of us has at some time or another privately or publicly made negative assumptions about people who are or have been incarcerated, who are addicted to drugs, who live in low-income neighborhoods, who love people of the same gender, or who suffer from certain diseases. In this book, Dr. Pernessa Seele teaches us how to combat that cultural and societal stigmatization. She argues that with practical stigma management, we can transform ourselves and our society so that both are guided by love and acceptance.
