An Evidence-Based Approach to Supervised Visitation

One of the biggest challenges facing SV programs is the scant amount of research on the impact of SV on families. Finally, programs seeking financial support, donations, and grants can implement a program proven to be effective in reducing abuse and neglect in families.

Nurturing Parenting Programs have been reviewed and awarded with high scores in the National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices.

You can learn about the research that validates this program HERE
