Women in Correction meeting on Domestic Violence
From left to right, Former Warden Sandra Langston is now an RN and administers to abused persons when they come into the hospital. She discussed the trauma associated with that. Former Captain Victoria Pearson is a Mental Health Therapist and she discussed the mental health effects of being in the situation and how it affects the whole family and finally Paula Billups who works in the Crime Victims advocate Unit gave us the stats and criminal possibilities when one is victimized.
We had several survivors who shared their experiences and all pledged to be available for support and council if called upon by WIC and any DOC member.
