Pace Women's Justice Center (PWJC), Westchester's largest nonprofit provider of free legal services to victims of domestic violence, sexual assault and elder abuse, will hold a virtual event open to the public Thursday, April 8, at 12:30 p.m.

“All Databases are Incomplete,” a monologue and a chat, will be led by playwright Cynthia L. Cooper. Trauma manifests itself differently for everyone, making it difficult for people who haven't experienced it to respond, help or understand, leading to the question "Why didn't you leave?" After a reading of Cooper’s monologue a live discussion will follow focusing on the impact of abuse patterns commonly referred to as coercive control and the coping methods survivors employ to handle the psychological trauma.

Joining Cooper will be Liane Nelson, Ph.D., chief psychologist and director of the Tracer Lemp Center for Trauma and Resilience, WJCS and Maria Trusa, author of “I Say No More” and CEO of Formé Medical Center.
