Biography

Dr. Lee is AAMFT Approved Supervisor, Associate Professor and Founding Director of the HKU Family Institute, and Faculty Member of the Minuchin Center for the Family in New York, USA.

Much of Dr. Lee’s research concentration had been on dispersing the many myths about Asian Chinese families, while developing a framework for a culturally relevant approach in working with not just Chinese families, but also families of the world. Her expertise in research and practice has influenced family workers all over Asia, particularly in Mainland China and Taiwan. Her research on Children’s response to parental conflict has been considered ground-breaking in the international family therapy arena.

In addition to her numerous publications on working with Asian families, Dr. Lee has co-authored three books with Salvador Minuchin, including “Mastering family therapy – Journeys of growth and transformation,” with the first edition translated into eight languages, and the most recent, “Assessing families and couples – From symptom to system,” together with Michael Nichols.
