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.

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.
