YEARS OF EXPERIENCE
Dr. Susan Yoon is an Assistant Professor at The Ohio State University College of Social Work. She received her BA and MSW from Ewha Womans University in South Korea and earned her Ph.D. in social welfare from Case Western Reserve University. Dr. Yoon’s research seeks to promote resilience and well-being in children who have experienced childhood trauma, including child maltreatment. Specifically, her research focuses on understanding the longitudinal effects of child maltreatment on child development during childhood and adolescence, with a particular interest in identifying factors, mechanisms and pathways that promote or hinder resilient development following child maltreatment. Her current research includes (1) an exploration of the conceptualization and measurement of the construct ‘resilience’; (2) investigation of the developmental pathways from child maltreatment to behavioral risks and resilience; and (3) the role of fathers in resilient development of maltreated youth.
