Shannon Suldo, PhD, is a Professor of School Psychology and a Licensed Psychologist (PY #7704, Florida) at the University of South Florida. She graduated with a Ph.D. in School Psychology from the University of South Carolina in 2004. She completed a pre-doctoral internship in Pediatric Psychology at the Kennedy Krieger Institute/Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. In 2007, she completed post-doctoral clinical work in Hillsborough County Public Schools, where she provided comprehensive mental health services (individual, group, and family counseling; teacher consultation; classroom management) to adolescents identified as having emotional and/or behavioral disorders.

Dr. Suldo's research interests include positive psychology applied to youth, including children and adolescents’ subjective well-being (e.g., positive indicators of well-being and a dual-factor model of mental health, interventions to promote students' subjective well-being, how adolescents' mental health is influenced by parent-child and student-teacher relationships), the social-emotional functioning of high school students participating in accelerated curricula such as Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate (IB) programs, and the provision of evidence-based school mental health services in a multi-tiered framework. She is an Associate Editor of School Mental Health, and on the editorial boards of School Psychology Review, Journal of School Psychology, Journal of Happiness Studies, and Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment.
 
Dr. Suldo’s research on youth subjective well-being is summarized in her 2016 book “Promoting Student Happiness: Positive Psychology Interventions in Schools.” This book is available as a print or e-book, through Guilford Press.
 
Dr. Suldo’s research on best practices in school mental health service delivery flowing from a dual-factor model of mental health is reflected in her 2021 co-authored edited book, “Fostering the Emotional Well-Being of Our Youth: A School-Based Approach.“ This book is available as a print or e-book, through Oxford University Press.
