Chung-Fan Ni - Bio

In 2003, I made a life changing, yet best decision to quit my teaching job in Taiwan to come to the U.S. for my Ph.D. study at the University of Connecticut. I have a master's degree in arts therapy and bachelor's degree in nursing. I have 10 years of professional experience in college teaching, research, counseling, art therapy, and nursing.

I teach Professional Orientation to Rehabilitation Services and Resources, Counseling Theories, Job Placement, Medical Aspects, Career Counseling, Practicum, and Advanced Practicum during the 2008-2009 academic year. My scholarly interest ranges widely, including various racial groups, rehabilitation needs and outcomes, mental disorders, and substance abuse. I also have research interests in interventions to promote mental health, education, and employment among racial minorities.

I love to travel and learn about different culture and countries. I have been to four continents and 14 countries. There are still many places I would love to see. In summer 2008, my husband Eric and I spent nine days driving from coast to coast with lots of fun and excitement. We came across several amazing cities, Route 66, the Democratic National Convention, and the Rocky Mountains, to name a few.
