Shannon Dorsey, Ph.D., is Professor and Associate Chair in the Department of Psychology at the University of Washington and Adjunct Professor in Global Health and Psychiatry. Her research focuses on treatment effectiveness and implementation science, specifically for children and adolescents receiving care in low and under-resourced contexts and settings. She has focused on how to address the mental health treatment gap by training and supporting lay counselors to deliver mental health care in regions and countries with few mental health professionals. She has also focused on supervision as an implementation strategy. All of her work includes strong partnerships and collaborations with communities and practice partners. She co-directs an NIMH-funded Center, IMPACT, focused on optimizing mental health care for children and adolescents in under-resourced settings.
