Judy Krysik Honored by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services

Judy Krysik, an associate professor in the School of Social Work at Arizona State University received the Children’s Bureau Champions Award for Promoting Child and Family Well-Being from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

Dr. Krysik created the Center for Child Well-Being at Arizona State University in 2015 and has been evaluating programs that support communities and families to create stable and nurturing environments for children. Dr. Krysik and the center’s staff established the Advanced Child Welfare Training Academy and founded the National Children of Incarcerated Parents conference, held annually since 2018.

“It’s really an honor to receive an award from the Children’s Bureau,” Dr. Krysik said. “A lot of the work that was done at the Center for Child Well-Being led to the award, particularly work with children whose parents have been incarcerated and families who have child welfare involvement. The center has been a national leader in these areas and has participated internationally.”

Professor Krysik joined the faculty at Arizona State University in 2005 after teaching at the University of Denver. She is the author of the textbook Research for Effective Social Work Practice, now in its fourth edition.

Dr. Krysik holds a master of social work degree from the University of Calgary in Alberta, Canada. She earned a Ph.D. in social work at Arizona State University.
