Course Description


Hello! My name is Sung-Kyung Yoo, a professor teaching Psychology classes at the department of psychology in Ewha Woman’s University. My specialty area in psychology is counseling psychology. I got my B.A and M.A from the Seoul National University majoring in Educational Psychology. I graduated from University of Minnesota for my Ph.D. in Counseling and Student Personnel Psychology Program. My research interest areas are women’s issues including their career development and work/life balance, cultural issues in counseling, counselor education and supervision. I teach classes both at undergraduate and graduate levels. For undergraduate students, I teach psychology of adolescence, counseling psychology, psychology of human relationship and counseling practicum. Graduate classes are advanced counseling theories, counselor education and supervision, and women’s issues in counseling. In addition to research and teaching, I counsel clients and provide clinical supervision to professional counselors or counselors in-training. My clinical expertise lies in relationship issues, parenting issues, and personality issues. From my research, teaching and clinical experiences, I find adolescence is a time of interest with a full of energy and promise. Since I began teaching at Ewha in 2001, I have continued to teach psychology of adolescence.
As a mother of great 3 boys, a wife and a professor with a great workload, I have been struggling to balance my life to reach my utmost happiness. With a belief that integration of personal and professional life is one of the invaluable goals in my profession, I enjoy sharing my lessons learned from my clients, kids, and students in addition to my learning from textbooks. I am a born-again Christian, and pray that I may practice Christian values in my work and life.
