Longtime APA and WPA member, H. Steven Moffic, MD, has shared news of the release of his new book, Islamophobia and Psychiatry: Recognition, Prevention, and Treatment, co-authored by Drs. John Peteet, Ahmed Zakaria Hankir and Rania Awaad. 

From the Back Cover: 

The book begins by covering the general and clinical challenges that are unique to Muslims, drawing from an internationally, ethnically, and intergenerationally diverse pool of experts.  The text covers not only how psychiatrists and other clinicians can intervene successfully with patients, but how we as clinicians can have a role in addressing other societally connected mental health challenges arising from Islamophobia. The text addresses three related but distinct areas of interest: Islamophobia as a destructive force, Islam as a religion that is threatened by stigma and misinformation, and the novel intersection of these forces with the field of psychiatry.
