Supervised Visitation

A staff person performing the role of supervised visitation is know as a PVM (Parent Visitation Monitor).  The PVM is present during visits taking place between a parent or parents and their child(ren). The PVM’s role during the visits is to ensure the emotional and physical safety of the child(ren), look for opportunities that the parent(s) is/are practicing effective parenting skills, as well as remind the parent(s) to use recently learned skills. If unsafe situations arise, the PVM will intervene, which may include, but not limited to, redirecting the parent, ending the visit or if the situation warrants it, making a call to the on-call social worker. Additionally, this person may transport the child(ren) between a parent’s home and foster home/temporary placement. Stein Counseling follows and is a member of the Supervised Visitation Network.
