About Changing Perceptions


The foundation of Changing Perceptions was built upon years of research and understanding the totality of the organic impact of trauma.

For more than three years, Changing Perceptions founder Davonna Livingston, investigated and documented the long term effects of trauma by interviewing women located in prisons all over the country.

In 2013, Her research was published in the book, Voices Behind the Razorwire, which contains the heartbreaking accounts of each woman’s abuse and how that (their) abuse helped to lead them down the paths to incarceration.

Moved to action by what she discovered, Livingston took what she garnered from her research and founded Changing Perceptions in the hopes that she would be able to help other survivors learn how to fully understand the impact their trauma has had on the totality of their lives and their ability to maintain self-sustainability.
