Therapeutic Supervised Visitation:
Traditionally, supervised visits between a non-custodial parent and a child are similar to a therapeutic supervised visitation, except that the licensed therapist supervises and guides the visit. Prior, during and after the visit, the therapist meets the family in order to “bind the wound” in an unwanted relationship between parent and child. The therapist complies with the guidelines established by the court or referral agency and sends progress reports and recommendations, as required, to the referral source.
