Part 3: Voices from AUNE PsyD Graduates in the Time of the Pandemic

“We take considerable pride in how alumni and alumnae are changing the world,” said Dr. Vincent Pignatiello, Chair of the Department of Clinical Psychology. “It is exciting that each week we are able to broadcast their voices to the world about their personal and professional journeys. In this third installment, it’s a great pleasure to be able to introduce three alums, two of whom were my own classmates at AUNE, who embody the reflexive, thoughtful, and social justice-oriented mindset of Antioch.”
