Samuel E. Vaughn


My name is Samuel E. Vaughn, and I have been in the field of adult mental health and abuse for almost 6 years. During my tenure, I have worked with survivors and perpetrators of domestic and sexual violence. In particular, I ran the Erie County Domestic Violence Rape Crisis Center and Non-Residential Domestic Violence provider for New York State, which serviced the statewide hotlines for Domestic and Sexual Violence. While in this role, I coordinated crisis intervention at eight area hospital emergency rooms, and provided support services 24 hours a day, 365 days a week. In addition, I started one of five PREA (Prison Rape Elimination Act) Hotline services in the country and helped develop a new way for incarcerated individuals to report sexual assault while incarcerated. Following my departure from this position, I joined an agency doing forensic mental health evaluations and treatment for individuals and groups involved in the criminal justice process. I am trained in the globally-used, evidenced-based assessment actuaries: STATIC-99R, STABLE-2007, and ACUTE-2007. In addition to working with patients individually, I also supervised forensic and chemical dependency clinics, which have more than 750 patients admitted yearly. Throughout my career, I continue to serve on a series of community organizations and boards that work to reduce community interpersonal violence.
