SHSS Faculty Members and Students to Share Experiences about Intercultural Exchange Trip to China, Oct. 15

During the summer a group of graduate students and faculty from the Graduate School of Humanities and Social Sciences (SHSS)  traveled to Bejing, China to engage in a ten day Intercultural Exchange in Counseling, Psychology and Family Therapy. The trip was led by John Miller, Ph.D., associate professor in the Department of Family Therapy (DFT), as part of a course that he teaches: International Perspectives in Counseling and Therapy. This is the second summer that Miller’s course and trip to China has been offered to SHSS students.

Miller and the students will provide a presentation about the exchange on Monday, Oct. 15, 1:00 – 3:00p.m. in rooms 1053/1054 of the Carl DeSantis Building. The presentation is open to the public.

The project involved collaborative symposium in Beijing between the SHSS graduate students and faculty and Beijing Normal University, offering an opportunity for student-scholars to exchange ideas about the field of therapy from both a Western and Eastern cultural perspective.  The trip also involved the first “Sino-American Forum on Marriage and Family Therapy,” which was attended by top scholars in the area of family therapy and psychology from across China. Dean Honggang Yang, Ph.D., delivered a welcome address for the opening plenary at the forum that SHSS co-sponsored.

Beijing Normal University’s Institute for Developmental Psychology hosted the forum and the exchange with SHSS as a co-sponsor. Miller presented two papers entitled, “Core Competencies in the Practice of Couples and Family Therapy in the US and China,” and “Single Session Family Therapy in the Chinese Context.”

Miller’s research interests include international issues in counseling, couples, and family therapy (China, Cambodia, Vietnam, and Mexico); innovative clinical service delivery systems; core competencies in psychotherapy; and brief, check-up, and single-session treatment models.
