New books published by Hinshaw and Horowitz

Monday, March 24, 2014

Vice Chair for Psychology Stephen Hinshaw, PhD, along with health economist Richard M. Scheffler, PhD, has written a new book exploring the origins, societal costs, and treatment of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). The ADHD Explosion: Myths, Medication, Money, and Today’s Push for Performance, published in March by Oxford University Press, has received glowing reviews from media critics and industry professionals. Hinshaw and Scheffler will discuss their research and the book at an event at the Commonwealth Club in June.

Prolific author Mardi Horowitz, MD, will publish his next book in May. Identity and the New Psychoanalytic Explorations of Self-Organization, forthcoming from Routledge, aims to anchor the concepts required in speaking about identity in present day understanding. Psychological Issues editor David Wolitzky, PhD, has praised Horowitz’s new work as “a much needed, worthy successor to Erikson's ground breaking monograph, Identity and the Life Cycle.”
