Shannon Stewart is currently providing training and consultation for the Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for psychosis (CBTp) project. She graduated from Arizona State University with a dual major in Psychology and Communication while later completing her MA in Community Counseling at Seattle University. Prior to joining the UW Psychiatry Department, she worked at Harborview Medical Center providing CBTp treatment and provider consultation to support individuals experiencing serious mental illness (SMI). She also served on Harborview's First Episode Psychosis (FEP) team providing early intervention evidence based treatment to individuals navigating the onset of psychotic disorders. In addition to her focus on CBTp, she has significant experience delivering evidence based employment support services which focus on transitioning individuals experiencing SMI back to meaningful community employment. Shannon's interests involve understanding/addressing how stigma around SMI creates barriers to access, engagement, therapeutic rapport building and ultimately meaningful recovery.
