Day Day One: SVN Training Institute  

On day one, the training Institute is going to offer three “deep dive” sessions:

Policy Development: A unique opportunity to “Unpack” and explore the most commonly debated policies and procedures of supervised visitation, including gift giving, cell phones, food, additional visitors, photo taking, bathroom procedures, and more.

Key Concepts: The faculty for the online Key Concepts training will be facilitating a session that expands on the concepts of Neutrality, Ethics, Safety, Trauma, Intervention, Collaboration and Documentation.

Therapeutic Visitation: The New Standard- With the pending changes to the SVN standards regarding Therapeutic Visitation and other modalities of supervised visitation, this session will explore and discuss the implications for providers, and whether or not they actually provide TSV.

Day Two: SVN Blue Print 

When you attend one of our regional sessions, you will join a team of SV Providers and allied professionals who will discuss changes, adaptations, and trends for our field leading to a formally published Position Paper designed to educate and inform courts, communities, and legislators.

The Blueprint Meetings will be one-day networking and brainstorming opportunities with a modest registration fee to cover costs. This is NOT training, we will be facilitating the discussion with the intent to offer a concrete vision and pathway to increasing awareness of the value of supervised visitation.

At this meeting, we will also be soliciting feedback from the membership to help inform the strategic planning process scheduled to begin in November. This is your chance to voice your thoughts about the future of your association.

What exactly is a Certificate Training?

A certificate program is a non-degree granting structured learning program that is designed to meet specific and predetermined learning outcomes and for which individual achievement of intended learning outcomes is measured. It is different than a standard training program that issues a certificate of attendance. The key distinction is that certificate programs use a measurement of learner achievement (test). Similar to an academic degree, it does not speak to the ability to perform a specific job or career, but does demonstrate successful attainment of the information presented during the training.

Per credentialing industry practices, the organization issuing the certificate program (SVN) must also be the provider (SVN) of the educational program. This is an optional program and SVN members can elect to meet the SVN 24 hour training requirement independently of this program. It is worth noting that during the 3 year environmental survey conducted through the work of the credentialing committee, almost half of the members responded that there were not sufficient training opportunities in their areas. This program was developed to meet the need for training for those providers who have difficulty meeting the SVN training standards, or who may want formal recognition for attaining the certificate that is issued.

Please note that while this program was designed to specifically meet the SVN standards, it may possibly meet specific state and/or government requirements in your area. Each attendee is encouraged to seek counsel to verify applicability in their area.
