Stephen J. Morewitz, lecturer in the CSUEB Department of Nursing and Health Sciences, won the San Jose State University Annual Author Awards 2013 for co-editing the Handbook of Forensic Sociology and Psychology (New York: Springer, 2013) with Mark L. Goldstein, Ph.D. 

The Handbook of Forensic Sociology and Psychology is a landmark publication that offers a detailed and comprehensive road map for sociologists and psychologists to apply theory and research methods as expert witnesses and consultants in the fields of civil, criminal, immigration, and military law. The Handbook also demonstrates to attorneys, law firms, and the general public the different ways in which sociological and psychological concepts, theories, and methods can be best utilized in litigation.

Morewitz is the author of more than 100 publications, including the award-winning book, Stalking and Violence (New York: Kluwer/Plenum, 2003), the award-winning book, Domestic Violence and Maternal and Child Health (New York: Springer, 2004), Chronic Disorders in Children and Adolescents (New York: Springer, 2011), Chronic Diseases and Health Care (New York, Springer, 2006), and Aging and Chronic Disorders (New York, Springer 2008) with Mark L. Goldstein. Prior to teaching at CSUEB, he was professor and Research Dean at the California School of Podiatric Medicine, CA, and has been on the faculty or staffs of Michael Reese Hospital, University of Illinois at Chicago, College of Medicine, Department of Family Practice, and School of Public Health, DePaul University, and Argonne National Laboratory.

Congrats, Dr. Morewitz!
