Dr. Anthony M. Foster is an Assistant Professor of Psychology at the University of Houston-Downtown. He earned his Ph.D. in Experimental Psychology, with an emphasis in Social Psychology, from Texas Tech University. Broadly speaking, his research examines the disclosure process of concealable stigmatized identities (e.g., mental health diagnoses, minoritized sexual identities, etc.) to understand how individuals' motivation to disclose their stigma to others impacts their post-disclosure well-being. The goal of his work is to identify amenable disclosure-context characteristics that can potentiate more personal and health-related benefits among individuals living with, what society deems, "discreditable" attributes.
