Become a Supervised Visitation Worker!
Supervised Visitation Workers facilitate visits occurring between parent(s) and child(ren) who have been removed from the parent’s care due to abuse or neglect. Provide transportation for children to and from supervised visits. During visits, the Supervised Visitation Worker will focus on the observation and documentation of parenting skills. This includes appropriate and inappropriate interactions, age expectations, behavior management techniques, and visit planning/preparation. Sibling visits need to focus on establishing and/or maintaining sibling relationships. Documentation should describe the interactions of the involved family members including greetings, activities, interactions, conversations, and care provided by parents as well as actions providers or parents took to redirect inappropriate situations.
