Corrigan, PsyD, is a professor of psychology at the University of Chicago Center of Psychiatric Rehabilitation. (Tinley Park, IL)- This edited book examines the premise that many of the problems of serious mental illness are caused not by the persons disabilities but by the publics stigmatizing reaction to these disabilities.- The book translates basic behavioral research, especially from social psychology, to an issue of prime importance to clinical psychology.- Explores the causes of such stigmatizing attitudes, including media images and a culture that does not respect persons with mental illness. Living within such a culture often leads to self-stigmatization as well- Bookstore Market: Medical bookstores with resident/interns in mental illness and mental illness sections of general bookstores.- Library Market: Clinical Collections, Mental Illness sections, Resident/Intern medical collections with specialty in mental illness at Medical Institutions, Medical Libraries at Universities/Colleges and Hospital libraries
