Shih-Ying Cheng

Shih-Ying Cheng, MSW, Ph.D. (she/her) is an Assistant Professor in Jane Addams College of Social Work, University of Illinois Chicago. Her research is focused on gender-based violence (GBV), with special attention to severe forms of violence and GBV among vulnerable populations. Her research is inspired by my social work practice working with survivors of intimate partner violence (IPV) and marriage immigrants who migrated to Taiwan through international marriages (mostly via marriage brokers). Shih-Ying examines the impact of GBV on survivors, survivors’ recovery process and the implementation of evidence-based interventions. She is particularly interested in the intersection of GBV and the immigrant community in the U.S. including Asian immigrant GBV survivors’ help seeking and cultural adaptation of evidence-supported intervention and assessment for Asian survivors.
