Dr. Christian Conte speaks to SCI Greene inmates

Dr. Conte gave a powerful presentation about letting go of anger, taking responsibility and finding peace within yourself. His presentation was followed up by Pam Tarr, who spoke about the devastating affects her family endured when their 24-year-old son, Tommy, was killed during a violent robbery. The afternoon session followed up with Megan Simms, a legal advocate for victims, that spoke about the victim advocacy process and the trauma felt by victims. Courtney Downey from the Crime Victims Center talked about the rights and services available for victims of crime as well as the challenges of the legal system that the victims must face.

Approximately 100 inmates attended.
