Dr. Stephen Hinshaw is a professor of psychology at the University of California, Berkeley, where he was department chair from 2004-2011. He is also a professor of psychiatry and vice-chair for Child and Adolescent Psychology at the University of California, San Francisco.
He received his bachelor’s degree from Harvard (summa cum laude) and, after directing school programs and residential summer camps, his doctorate in clinical psychology from UCLA. His post-doctoral fellowship occurred at the Langley Porter Institute of UC San Francisco.
His work focuses on developmental psychopathology, clinical interventions with children and adolescents (particularly mechanisms underlying therapeutic change), and mental illness stigma. He has directed research programs and conducted clinical trials and longitudinal studies for boys and, more recently, for girls with inattention and impulse-control problems, having received over $20 million in NIH funding. He has been principal investigator of the Berkeley site for the Multimodal Treatment Study of Children with ADHD (MTA) since 1992.
Dr. Hinshaw has authored over 340 articles and chapters (h-index, Google Scholar = 109), plus 12 books, including The Mark of Shame: Stigma of Mental Illness and an Agenda for Change (Oxford, 2007), The Triple Bind: Saving Our Teenage Girls from Today’s Pressures (Random House, 2009), and (with R. Scheffler) The ADHD Explosion: Myths, Medications, Money, and Today’s Push for Performance (Oxford, 2014). His newest book is a deep family narrative, Another Kind of Madness: A Journey through the Stigma and Hope of Mental Illness (St. Martin’s, 2017). Overall, he was one of the 10 most productive scholars in the field of clinical psychology across the past decade.
