Morristown, N.J. (April 19, 2017) – Ashley Stanton, of Wilmington, D.E., has successfully defended her doctoral dissertation at the College of Saint Elizabeth to earn a Psy.D. in Counseling Psychology. Her dissertation is titled, "Bridging the Gap: A Comparison of Parental Stress and Depression in Parents of Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) to Parents of Children with Chronic Medical Conditions."
"My experience with the program has been everything that I could have wanted in a graduate program," says Stanton. "The professors provided me not only with an amazing education but also guidance throughout the program. Their investment in the program and the students allowed me to progress successfully through each year and encouraged me during difficult times. Because of this I have been able to move into my internship experience with a level of confidence that I did not have when first starting the program. I am extremely grateful."
The Psy.D. program, started in 2013, is a four-year, 88-credit, full-time program offered in a supportive cohort learning model. Of the total 88 credits, 15 credits may be completed by students through required courses in their master's programs and transferred into the Psy.D. program.
