Book Excerpt! The Stigma Effect (preface)

The strength of this book is the way it balances the interconnected components of self-stigma and public stigma, with equally strong treatment of both. It will be of interest to people interested or involved in stigma reduction, either as advocates, policy folks, or personally.

~Stephanie Knaak, University of Calgary
