Suicide Prevention - Building Relational Capacities

The College of Behavioral and Social Sciences Faculty Colloquium Series congratulates Dr. Shelley Hart, Department of Child Development, for being selected as this year’s honored scholar and keynote speaker. Dr. Shelley Hart has a strong interest in research with an applied focus; her specific research interests include early-onset bipolar, wellness, and suicide prevention. She has an outstanding research, publication, and speaking history which includes several books, multiple book chapters, nearly 20 peer reviewed journal articles, more than 45 presentations at scholarly meetings, and more than a dozen grants.  Due in part to her research success, in the spring of 2018, Dr. Hart received early tenure and accelerated promotion to Associate Professor.

As a Nationally Certified School Psychologist since 2006, Dr. Hart has made a unique and significant contribution to the local community.  She maintains an active relationship with Butte County Office of Education working on projects and grants to bring professional development opportunities for students, teachers, and staff in the area of early childhood.  These activities strive to build the capacity of direct services providers, families, and other support systems that directly influence young children in our area. She serves on the Butte County Juvenile Justice Delinquency Prevention Commission and is a very engaged member of the Butte County Adverse Child Experiences Coalition (Butte Thrives). 

The event was held on November 5, 2019 and very well attended. Please join the dean's office in congratulating Dr. Hart.
