Standards For Supervised Visitation Practice
16.0 Interventions And Ending A Visit Or Exchange In Progress
This section defines the parameters for staff interventions and ending a parent/child visit in progress.
16.2 General Policies
A provider must have written policies and procedures for intervening in and ending parent/child visits in progress. The policies must include situations in which the provider determines:
- A child is acutely distressed;
- A parent is not following the program rules set out by the service agreement; and
- A participant is at risk of imminent harm either emotionally or physically.
Ending a client's parent/child contact may be a temporary measure and is not the same as termination of services.
