Pulido, Ph.D., Executive Director of The New York Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children, oversees all program activities where she lends her extensive experience in the mental health field. Mary has over three decades of practice addressing the needs of fragile families and abused and neglected children. In light of recent terrorist attacks, we as adults can be deeply affected.
