Nearly 225 students in PCOM’s graduate programs received their advanced degrees on July 31, transitioning them to the next phase of their professional lives.
This year’s keynote speaker, Rosemary B. Mennuti, EdD, is the founding director of PCOM’s graduate degree programs in school psychology. She has published and presented widely in the treatment of eating disorders, cognitive-behavioral group therapy, moral reasoning, and ethical decision making. She is a diplomate of the American Psychotherapy Association and is certified in school counseling, school psychology and group psychotherapy.
Dr. Mennuti asked the graduates to consider their connections with others, and the need to be present in the moment, as keys to success. She also urged them to have deep courage in all that they do. “Take your authentic self to work,” she said. “Stand up for what you believe in.”
