Sanghee Lee

In the undergraduate department, I majored in child welfare at Sookmyung Women’s University. After that, I experienced as a daycare teacher by Seongnam Samsung Child Care Center. In order to become a good teacher, I entered the master’s course as a major in early childhood education.

I entered the Ph.D. program in 1999. At that time, I recognized the importance of parent-child relationships and attachment. I have continuously developed The Mother-Child Theraplay Program. I obtained a doctorate in literature in February 2003 to verify the effectiveness of the program.

From March 2005 to February 2007, I worked as a professor of child welfare at Namseoul University.  After that, from March 2007 to February 2011, The Heart Psychological Institute was established and managed.

I have been working as a professor at Duwon Technical University since March 2011. Doowon Technical University
