Antonia Winstead teaches for the Program in Criminal Justice, including the Internship course for C.J. majors. She earned her Master of Social Work degree from Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey—New Brunswick, and her Bachelor of Science degree in Government Pre-Law from Oral Roberts University. Winstead attended the New Brunswick Theological Seminary in New Brunswick, New Jersey, and the University of the District of Columbia David A. Clarke School of Law in Washington, D.C. She has over 20 years of experience in Individual and Family Counseling; furthermore, her specific areas of social work interests include Mental Health, Clinical Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Family Counseling. Another passion of Winstead’s is traveling and examining social work practices in other countries and cultures: she traveled to both Israel and South Africa for extended periods of time to complete research and various projects comparing social work practices there to those in the United States.

Winstead has six years of experience working as a Program Director for the Department of Law and Public Safety with the Division of Criminal Justice in New Jersey in Instruction and Training Roles. During her time there she counseled adolescent substance abusers, provided therapy for family crisis prevention, and was responsible for creating and implementing treatment plans for sexual assault offenders. Moreover, Winstead served as a career counselor for students preparing to enter into the professional field of Criminal Justice.

Many of Winstead’s projects and roles involved working with crisis intervention, victim’s rights and assistance, law enforcement, and counseling. Winstead developed, coordinated, and implemented a state-wide victim notification service for when prisoners were released. She also directed personnel development and victim assistance training for 560 local police municipalities. In 2008, Winstead launched The Clarity Legacy Institute, LLC, an organization dedicated to teaching women, executive leaders, and clergy how to leave a legacy for generations to come through mental wholeness.
