Supervised Visitation programs frequently accept cases involving Domestic Violence and must be vigilant in their efforts to ensure safety for all parties. Domestic violence risks are often heightened for victims and their children during and after separation. Coercion, intimidation, violence, stalking and other tactics intended to control and dominate can shift and change during separation, and visitation center staff can play a key role in providing safety during this time.
Dealing with challenging clients is a hot topic for SV providers. This audio training will be driven by the specific questions and scenarios sent to us by members. Our panel of providers from across the continent will tackle the most complicated challenges facing providers and provide some specific examples about how they would consider and address the issues presented.
The panel will include:
Laura Connelly, Grand Rapids, MN
Aaron Wimmer, Sioux Falls, SD

Safety and Security in SV

Panelists: Aaron Wimmer, Kelley Beckett, and Christina Coultas
Recent tragedies during supervised visitations have brought the discussion of safety in supervised settings to the forefront. A great deal of the focus of local media has been on whether the use of a metal detector would have prevented some of these tragedies. Are metal detectors an effective deterrent? How can SV providers improve safety protocols? We have invited a panel of 4 SV providers with varying degrees of safety measures in place to discuss the pros and cons of security officers, metal detection devices, cameras and other potential safety measures that are in use by providers.
