Shell Model techniques are powerful tools to describe the nuclear structure effects observed in reactions and decays. This contribution describes several relevant shell model applications, including double beta decays, compound nuclear reactions, and direct nuclear reactions. In particular it discusses the role of spectroscopic factor extracted from transfer reactions in revealing proton-neutron correlations effects in nuclei. It also identifies the elements of the effective shell model Hamiltonian that are responsible for these strong correlations.
