 Professor Cecilia L. W. Chan is Si Yuan Chair Professor in Health and Social Work, Department of Social Work and Social Administration, The University of Hong Kong.  Professor Chan is known for her leadership on health and mental health in social work. She adopted a strength-oriented empowerment approach in working with traumatized individuals such as patients with cancer, depression, insomnia, as well as women of divorce, suicide survivors and victims of disaster. Her intervention focus is on transformation through pain and suffering. She adopted vigorous bio-psycho-social outcome indicators such as salivary cortisol (stress) and telomerase (anti-aging) in her randomized trials to measure physiological impact of her innovative Integrative Body-Mind-Spirit (IBMS) interventions and qigong exercises training. Her integrative meaning-making empowerment strategies effectively nurture spirituality of forgiveness, appreciation, gratitude, peace, hope, resilience and optimism, which are fundamental to building a harmonious society. Her contributions are recognized by her many international awards and local recognitions.
