What is Therapeutic Supervised Visitation?
DAZ's Therapeutic Supervised Visitation program (TSV) is similar to
a traditional supervised or monitored visit
between a parent and a child, except that two Master's Level therapists
are involved in supervising and guiding the visit.
Therapeutic Supervised Visitation (TSV) provides structured, interactive guidance
on the parent-child relationship, with a focus on
positive parenting education and skills,
the relationship between parent and child,
and on helping the child cope with the changes in his or her family.
GOALS of Therapeutic Supervised Visitation
To provide a protected visitation and a therapeutic intervention between the child and the parent
so that the child benefits as much as possible from the contact
To assist the child and his or her family in maintaining or re-establishing relationships that are
healthy and safe for the child
To assist the child in the transition to a different family structure, while providing
for the safety of the child
To provide custody evaluators and treatment professionals with supplemental information
for custody, visitation and treatment planning
To make sure that the guidelines set by the court or referral agency are followed
and submit progress reports and recommendations to the referral source as required.
TSV is not confidential. Therapist-client privilege does not apply.
