Stephen J. Ducat, N.D., Ph.D., is a <a href="http://realizehealth.org/" target="_hplink">naturopathic doctor</a> and a clinical psychologist, licensed in both professions in California, and practices in the San Francisco Bay Area, where he operates <em>The Mind-Body Clinic</em>. He is currently a full time clinician specializing in integrative mental health, an approach that joins science-based natural medicine, nutrition, and psychotherapy. You can learn more about his clinical work at <a href="http://themindbodyclinic.com" target="_hplink">themindbodyclinic.com</a>.<br /> <br /> Whether in the practice of medicine, in his writing, or in teaching, Dr. Ducat has never been content to remain on the disciplinary reservation. He had been a professor for 20 years in the Humanities Program at New College of California until its untimely demise a few years ago. There he taught political psychology, psychohistory, crosscultural psychology, the psychology of gender, and social theory. His teaching posts since then have included a stint as a visiting professor at the interdisciplinary Fairhaven College of the University of Western Washington.<br /> <br /> Stephen continues to publish and speak widely on the psychology of politics. His latest book is <em>The Wimp Factor: Gender Gaps, Holy Wars, and the Politics of Anxious Masculinity.</em>
