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.

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.

What exactly is a Certificate Training?

Certificate Program is a non-degree- granting structured learning program that is designed to meet specific and pre-determined 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 specifically 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.
