Elizabeth Anthony
Associate Professor
School Of Social Work

Elizabeth Anthony is an associate professor in the School of Social Work and faculty affiliate with the Center for Child Well-Being and the Southwest Interdisciplinary Research Center.

Anthony's scholarship centers on the well-being of low-income children and adolescents. Her areas of expertise include resilience among children and adolescents exposed to environmental stressors, prevention of behavioral health concerns, measurement of well-being among children and adolescents, and innovative models to support families (such as peer parent models). Anthony is particularly interested in the use of measures of child and adolescent well-being and resilience not simply as outcome measures but as tools to improve assessment and preventive intervention practices.

Anthony teaches doctoral research and clinical practice courses with children and adolescents.

Prior to coming to ASU, Anthony was a post-doctoral fellow at the University of California, Berkeley.  She earned her Ph.D. from the University of Denver.
