Welcome to the Hinshaw Lab!

Professor Hinshaw and his research group have three primary research and clinical interests:

  1. Developmental Psychopathology and Longitudinal Research
  2. Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)—Causal Pathways and Mechanisms Underlying Lifespan Improvement
  3. Stigmatization of Mental Illness—Key Processes and Strategies for Stigma Reduction

Professor Hinshaw has a longstanding research program investigating developmental mechanisms underlying ADHD and associated behavioral and emotional problems. His research program exemplifies several central tenets guiding the study of developmental psychopathology; namely (a) ascertaining continuities across, and discontinuities between, normal and atypical development; (b) examining the contribution of familial and peer relationships to normative and non-normative behavior; and (c) considering the interplay of psychobiological and psychosocial factors related to the causation and maintenance of disordered behavior patterns.
