Paul Cantz, Psy.D.
BBC Features Insight from Dr. Cantz on Historic Social Aversion to Steroids in Baseball

Following Major League Baseball's suspension of 13 players related to use of performance-enhancing drugs, a writer for BBC News spoke with experts about America's historic cultural and social aversion to "doping" in baseball. In the story, the Adler School's Paul Cantz, Psy.D, describes American ideals about the game, the Greco-Roman physical ideal, and how steroids "compromise the soul of the sport."

His remarks reflect his presentation with co-authors on "The Uniqueness of Baseball as an American Sport: A Psycho-Biblical Analysis" at the 25th Cooperstown Symposium on Baseball and American Culture, at the Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in May. Dr. Cantz is Core Faculty in the Adler School Doctor of Psychology in Clinical Psychology program in Chicago, and Associate Director of Training.
