SUPERVISED VISITATION – THE GOOD, THE BAD, THE UNREALISTIC
If you’ve never known anyone who had some pretty rugged child custody battles, you may not know what supervised visitation is. In cases where the courts are reluctant to allow a parent to spend time with his or her children alone (maybe there are assault or domestic violence issues), the court will order the parent to use the services of a visitation supervisor. This person or organization arranges for the hand off of kids between one parent and another, or will go on the visit with the kids and the parent to be sure everything is all right. Sometimes the parent will have the visit right at a protective facility. Sounds like a great solution for situations where there could be some danger, right?
Well, maybe. There are plenty of down sides, and like most things, there are consequences.
Join us Saturday when Tracee Parker shares her knowledge about supervised visitation. She was the Program Director of the Safe Havens Visitation Center/Safe & Sound Visitation in the Seattle area during its operation from January 2005 through December 2012. Her background includes domestic violence advocacy, community organizing, violence prevention, mediation, nonviolent conflict resolution training, and domestic violence perpetrator treatment. Tracee is currently working on her doctorate in clinical psychology where her research focus is post-separation battering, family law and domestic violence, and coercive control.
Join us Saturday at 11 am Pacific Time to learn more about supervised visitation.
