Associate Professor Laura Shannonhouse

Dr Laura Shannonhouse is an Associate Professor at Georgia State University. She is a nationally certified counselor, Licensed Professional Counselor, and a trainer/facilitator of several LivingWorks programs.

Her clinical experiences include a crisis center, college counseling center, cancer center, etc., as well as deployments with disaster impacted populations domestically and internationally (e.g. illness-related trauma in South Africa; daycare center fire disaster in Mexico with losses of 49 infants/toddlers, post-Katrina charter school teachers; both southeast Asian and post-earthquake Haitian refugees, post-earthquake Mexico City, etc.). Therefore, her research centers on crisis intervention and disaster response. She conducts community-based research in K-16 systems and with the aging network to prevent suicide (suicide first aid), and with disaster impacted populations in fostering meaning-making through one’s faith tradition (spiritual first aid). She has 55 juried journal articles, and ~40 additional publications with larger practitioner reacher (i.e. book chapters and op-eds).

She feels blessed to have had her scholarship funded by both federal (i.e. Department Health and Human Services) and foundations (i.e. John Templeton Foundation) entities.
