Psychiatrist explains how prison employee may have been “groomed” to help inmates escape

Joyce Mitchell

Prison employee Joyce Mitchell allegedly helped two inmates escape.

In an interview on CNN today, Forensic Psychiatrist Dr. Michael Welner spoke of the female prison employee, Joyce Mitchell, who is alleged to have helped the two New York inmates escape.

Lovefraud readers might find healing in what he had to say. He said that there may not be any particular vulnerability in a victim of what he terms “emotional hacking.” He states the greatest risk factors are “access and time.”

“We need to appreciate the vulnerability with prison employees the way we do our children with pedophiles,”  Welner says. He points out that, “We all see what we need to see in other people.” Prison workers need to regard the humanity of inmates, he says, and this regard makes them vulnerable.

If it is true that trained prison employees are vulnerable, then how much more vulnerable are the family members: children, spouses, parents and siblings of “emotional hackers?”

WOW Donna EXCELLENT interview thank you for posting!!!

This is what I have told others on here that start to blame their vulnerabilities instead of keeping the focus on the psychopaths mental games & masterful manipulation. Being around normal people you are safe with your vulnerabilities but being around a psychopath he/she will pick up on those and then destroy you mentally one by one.

This psychologist states that “Access & Time” is all that a psychopath needs = love bombing time!!

Grooming = love bombing

My ex h was relentless in the beginning with phone calls even though he knew I was at work by the time I got home he had left 8 message everyday!!….and he would show up unannounced this is the time & access the Dr was talking about. You might not being imitating the “Access & time” for them but you can surely bet the psychopath will push for the “Access & Time’ with you and everyone else = they no ZERO boundaries!!!!

“Access & Time is psychologically dangerous not just physically with a psychopath!!!” (These are this Dr’s words!!!) POWERFUL WORDS!!!

I hope this woman & her family sue the HELL out of the prison & state for not having the safety net in place for her/the prisoners to realize that this guy should NEVER have been around any other prison guard or any prisoners.e He should have been in solitary confinement with ZERO access to any human!! This is what Russia does with their psychopath in prison they know who they truly are and how they will destroy a prison from the inside out.


Donna have you thought about contacting CNN to give them an interview on this very subject???

You would give great insight into this for the masses especially how common these evil people are walking among us.


oops auto correct error…” You might not being imitating the “Access & time” for them” (not imitating but initiating”

should read “You might not be INITIATING the “Access & time for them”

but you can surely bet the psychopath will push for the “Access & Time’ with you and everyone else = they no ZERO boundaries!!!!”

Jan – I agree that this was an informative interview. Thank you to Dr. Liane Leedom for posting it.


Hi Liane, I am sorry again that I did not read first who wrote the article. Please except my apologize. Thank you for posting this very insightful interview sadly CNN did not play it throughout the day nor did they talk about it later in the evening shows to truly educate people. It’s a perfect example that society does not want to hear the truth about the evil that walks this planet starting with the reporters.
