SVN Annual Conference

"Recipe for Success"

May 29-31, 2019

Intercontinental Hotel
New Orleans, LA

A recipe is the outcome or end state that is an amalgamation of all of the ingredients. In supervised visitation, we are responsible for discovering the individualized ingredients that complete the recipe for safe child access.


At the 2019 SVN Annual Conference, we will explore those very ingredients that lead us to success in our services. While enjoying famous New Orleans cuisine like Gumbo and Beignets, we will acquire new ingredients that will help us "spice up" our commitment to safe, child-focused supervised access.

Participants attending this training will have the opportunity to step back and think about how domestic violence affects the families they work with and explore the work they do within the context of supervised visitation to provide safety. The training consists of mini lectures, interactive role-plays, and small and large group discussions. At the end of the training participants should have a better understanding of domestic violence, how to provide safer services to families experiencing domestic violence and how to develop a plan of action to take back to their communities to strengthen their already existing services.


On the first day, there will be sessions devoted to engaging families, types of violence, context of domestic violence, and post separation battering tactics. On the second day, we will be providing two interactive workshops specializing on the nuts and bolts of crafting policies and procedures that account for safety as well as how to balance accessibility needs with safety in supervised visitation.
