Victim Impact: Listen and Learn

by Libby Scott last modified Aug 07, 2013 01:01 PM
Victim Impact: Listen and Learn is a program that provides inmates an opportunity to learn how their behaviors have impacted others. Inmates learn how to define who their victims are, understand the possible impact of nine different crimes and work to comprehend the effects of those crimes on different victims.

Victim Impact: Listen and Learn is a curriculum developed by the Office for Victims of Crime (OVC) and it was designed to allow inmates the opportunity to learn how their behaviors impact the lives of others.  Here is a sample of the topics discussed:  robbery, assault, domestic violence, sexual assault, child abuse, DUI, and homicide.

Facilitators are required to go through a screening process with the Program Coordinator and then attend a six-hour training session to learn the curriculum.  The facilitator is required to be available for phone conferences with a co-facilitator and Program Coordinator.  Facilitating a class requires 2-3 hours each week for preparation and facilitation.  The class is two hours in length once a week for 13 weeks.

If you are a victim/survivor and are interested in sharing your story about how crime has impacted your life, you will be asked to go through a screening process with the Program Coordinator.  After the screening there will be an overview of the curriculum and your role in the class will be discussed.  The Program Coordinator will also cover the time commitment required and details regarding the prison facility within which you will be speaking.

We are looking for volunteers and speakers at all the KDOC facilities.  If you are interested, please contact Holly Chavez at (785) 817-2594.
