Gendered Justice:
Providing Trauma Services in the
Criminal Justice System
Dr. Stephanie S. Covington
Tuesday Night, June 4th, 2019
Optional Event | 1.5 Credits

One of the most challenging places to provide services is in a criminal justice setting. While human services are focused on care and change, justice settings are usually focused on control. This conflict in the culture often creates one of the major barriers to providing effective services.


This evening’s presentation provides an overview of what can be done to make a difference in custodial settings. Examples from the lives of incarcerated people in the US and the UK are provided. Gender differences are explored. This evening’s presentation offers us an opportunity to experience hope as we hear stories of resilience, healing, and transformation.


Learning/educational objectives:

  • Acknowledge the challenges of working in the criminal justice system

  • Discuss the innovations found in US and UK criminal justice settings

  • Describe stories of resilience and transformation
