She develops and supervises educational programs for prisoners, to contribute to inmates' personal development and community transition. Dr. Layton has taught a range of courses at university and secondary education levels, in a variety of U.S. and international settings and has designed education programs for over 20 years.

Her interests center on concepts and applications of education to prevent and change the dynamics of male violence in non-peaceful contexts.
