Ruth Gim H. Chung

Ruth Gim Chung's research interests are in cultural psychology and multicultural counseling, with particular focus on the acculturative process of Asian Americans and how it affects families and development of cultural identity in adolescents. She created a measure of acculturation (AAMAS) as well as intergenerational conflict (ICI) that are used widely in research on Asian Americans. She has published in the Journal of Counseling Psychology as well as Cultural Diversity and Ethnic Minority Psychology, and at one time ranked fifth among most frequent contributors to the field of multicultural counseling. She also co-edited a book on Sacred Spaces: Religion and Spirituality in Korean America published by University of Illinois Press. In terms of her pedagogical expertise, Chung specializes in teaching of statistics and research methodology in a meaningful and engaging manner to practitioners.
