Rochelle F. Hanson, Ph.D. is a Professor at the National Crime Victims Research and Treatment Center, in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the Medical University of South Carolina. Her area of research focuses on the dissemination and implementation of trauma-focused, evidence-based interventions. She is particularly interested in examining the process, effectiveness, and sustainability of implementation strategies that integrate multi-stakeholder participation as a vehicle for taking trauma-focused evidence based interventions to scale. She is also interested in examining feasible, efficient and cost effective ways to assess provider fidelity to evidence-based interventions, particularly as these relate to sustainability of implementation efforts in community practice settings. She has served as PI/Co-I on several related research and services grants funded by NIMH, Office for Victims of Crime, and the Duke Endowment and is currently serving as Project Director for a SAMHSA-funded National Child Traumatic Stress Network grant and as Co-Investigator for a South Carolina statewide program, both of which focus on dissemination/implementation of trauma-focused, evidence based interventions for youth and their families. She is Principal Investigator for an NIMH-funded grant to test the effectiveness of learning collaboratives as a way to build and strengthen interprofessional relationships to sustain evidence-based mental health treatment services. Throughout her career, Dr. Hanson has been extensively involved in training and mentoring activities for psychology interns and postdoctoral fellows.
