Nurturing Parenting Skills for Families in Supervised Visitation is an innovative program designed to empower parents and parent educators in creating customized, competency based parenting programs to meet the specific needs of families. It consists of 45 lessons, each lasting between approximately 30 minutes that are intended to either precede a supervised visitation, or be incorporated into the visit. The lessons are taken from the evidenced-based Nurturing Parenting Programs for Parents and Their Infants, Toddlers and Preschoolers, and Parents and Their School Age Children. Based on the assessed needs of the family, parents and parent educators work together and select competency based lessons from the curriculum to form a parenting/visitation program that is customized to meet the specific needs of the families.

Note: While this training will specifically highlight the Nurturing Parenting Skills for Families in Supervised Visitation Attendees will learn the skills need to implement All Nurturing Parenting programs.

An Evidence-Based Approach to Supervised Visitation

One of the biggest challenges facing SV programs is the scant amount of research of 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.
