HUNG Suet-lin Shirley


Hung Suet Lin Shirley is currently teaching social work at the Hong Kong Baptist University. She has been practicing community work by organizing women and residents to advocate for social changes for many years. She also has a background in the women’s movement in Hong Kong. Her first encounter with narrative practice was in 2003 when she attended an introductory course on narrative therapy. Since then, her interest in narrative practice has grown throughout the years. She completed an international post-graduate diploma in narrative therapy which was organized by the Dulwich Centre in 2010 and the Master in Narrative Therapy and Community Work programme jointly delivered by Melbourne University and the Dulwich Centre in 2015. She has developed a great interest in collective narrative practice, which she sees as a powerful way to work with groups and communities. Shirley is impassioned about promoting indigenous collective practices in Hong Kong Chinese society, particularly in working with the stigmatized groups from a gender perspective.
