Shannon Poe, DSW, LCSW

Training Consultant

Shannon currently is an LCSW specializing in trauma, grief, and loss. She focuses on the Mind-Body connection and is trained in EMDR, Clinical Hypnosis, Thanatology, and Advanced Mind-Body Medicine. While she maintains a small private practice, her focus is on working with individuals who are seeking to exit hate groups and return to society.

Since 2010, Shannon has worked in violence prevention with both community-based and local government-based violence prevention and intervention efforts. She has worked specifically with reducing shootings and murder rates around gang involved individuals by providing social service model interventions as an alternative in New Orleans and Chicago. She also worked with school aged youth to reduce violence and drug use among school-aged children.

Shannon has done both qualitative and quantitative research in the areas of resiliency, human trafficking, and community services for gang involved and returning citizens. She also consults with various organizations in England on the topics of gang and youth violence prevention.

Shannon holds a Master of Social Work from Tulane University and a Doctorate of Social Work from the University of Southern California. She is also a yoga teacher and holds a Certificate in Mindfulness and Wellbeing from the United Nations Centre for Peace. For fun, Shannon loves to travel, play competitive skee-ball (yes, that is real), and sing along to the entire Hamilton soundtrack.
