Healing The Wounds

The video portrays the story of "Melinda," a domestic violence survivor, and her journey through the legal process. The goal of the program is to educate victims of family violence about their legal rights.

Hopefully, after viewing this program, some of the victim's fear and confusion about the legal system will be eliminated.

This program is designed to be shown at battered women's shelters, police departments, county and district attorney's offices and other agencies that assist victims of domestic abuse.
