Experience

Yueh-Ching Chou identifies herself not only as a researcher but also as an activist.

After being trained as a social worker, she worked as a community social worker in Taipei City and as a care worker for people with intellectual disability (ID) at an institution and at a nursing home for frail older people in Taiwan. After that, she went to Minnesota for her doctoral study and after four years, received a PhD degree from the School of Social Work, University of Minnesota. Her doctoral thesis focused on an intervention developed for families who had a child with ID. Intervention development and program evaluation has since become her research expertise.

After completing her PhD training, she returned to Taiwan. There she has been teaching at the university and doing research on social services, in particular in co-operation with disabled people, families and NGOs. For example, she and senior practitioners and managers and families established in 2000 “the Taiwan Community Living Consortium” (TCLC) for advocating living and inclusion in the community for people with ID. Even now, the TCLC still fights with the government to get it to develop ordinary housing schemes for this group of people so that they could live in the community instead of an institution.

Her research work has been linked with her involvement with the disability movement and with practitioners and parents of disabled children, leading to a number of international and national publications in areas like: outcome evaluation, support needs of families and persons with a disability, quality of life, health issues of women with disability, sexual health of adults with disability, and work and care reconciliation policy related to mothers.

She is a co-editor of a new international journal, International Journal of Care and Caring (IJCC), which was launched in 2017 by Policy Press, UK. She is also a member of the International Advisory Board of the journal Social Work & Society.
