Time: 9:00am to 5:00pm (lunch will be included)

The workshop will be specifically geared towards therapists and clinical supervisors working with individuals who may have experienced trauma in the past. The training will focus on TF-CBT components and delivery using the standard model (individual treatment). Training will include didactics, modeling and demonstration, and role plays with feedback.
Shannon Dorsey, Ph.D., has a PhD in Clinical Psychology and is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the University of Washington, School of Medicine and an adjunct Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychology. Her research is on evidence-based treatments (EBT) for children and adolescents, with a particular focus on EBT for youth impacted by trauma who are involved with child welfare and on clinician training and supervision strategies. She is the Principal Investigator on an NIMH-funded effectiveness trial evaluating Trauma-focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) and evidence-based engagement strategies for youth in foster care – Foster Hope - and is involved in the evaluation of the SAMHSA-funded National Child Traumatic Stress Network. Dr. Dorsey is also currently working on a number of state and government-funded projects with the goal of enhancing outcomes for youth by improving training and supervision of clinicians in community settings. With Ms. Lucy Berliner, Dr. Dorsey also designed and directs the Washington State TF-CBT and CBT Plus Initiative, a statewide training and consultation program for clinicians who serve children and adolescents on Medicaid (funded by the Department of Behavioral Health and Recovery). In addition to this domestic work, Dr. Dorsey also has been focusing on implementing EBT in low and middle income countries. She is a Co-Investigator on an NIMH-funded study examining the feasibility of providing TF-CBT to youth who have been orphaned in Tanzania.
