Mo Yee Lee, PhD, is Professor of Social Work, College of Social Work, The Ohio State University. My expertise is primarily in the area of intervention research and practice using a strengths-based perspective and an integrative/holistic approach. My practice and research focus on domestic violence issues, home-based treatment for at-risk children and adolescents, meditation and treatment of trauma survivors of interpersonal violence, and an integrative body-mind-spirit clinical practice framework. I have published four books by the Oxford University Press: Solution-focused treatment with domestic violence offenders: Accountability for change, 2003, Integrative Body-Mind-Spirit Social Work: An empirically based approach to assessment and treatment, 2009; Solution-Oriented Social Work: A Practice Approach to Working with Client Strengths, 2011; and Culturally Competent Research, 2013.
