Shannon Wiltsey-Stirman has a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia. She is currently a Research Staff Psychologist at the National Center for PTSD/VA Boston Health Care System Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychiatry at Boston University. Her NIMH-funded career development award is an examination of influences on the sustainability of evidence based psychotherapies. She plans to use this research to develop a program of research that will eventually allow her to examine, on a large scale, factors that influence the use and sustainability of evidence-based practices in non-research settings such as the VA system and community-based mental health systems. Factors that she would like to examine include different training and consultation models, organization-level factors and interventions, and fidelity monitoring.
