Therapeutic Supervised Visitation (TSV)?
Therapeutic Monitored Visitation (TMV)?
What are the differences between TSV and TMV Visitation?
TSV is a type of visitation that allows parents to visit their children in a safe and appropriate environment. The visit will be supervised by a mental health professional, providing constructive criticism to the parents and helping them resolve issues that might be preventing them to bond with their kids. Parenting education is a major component of TSV.
Before beginning a therapeutic visitation process whereby a clinician will be monitoring the time spent by a child in the presence of a parent, there will be an obtained informed consent from the parent(s) or legal representative for the child who has authority to consent to treatment. The clinician with then inform the parent of the clinical process of the supervised parenting time, including the steps that will be taken to maintain the child’s physical and emotional safety.
The parent will be informed that the primary purpose of the court-ordered process will be to improve the child’s relationship with the parent, the child’s comfort level in becoming better acquainted with the parent, as they spend time together, and to provide psycho-educational information to the parent concerning the child’s needs, the child’s emotional safety, and basic parenting tips.
TMV is a type of visitation that allows parents to visit their children in a safe and appropriate environment. Many families struggle with substance use, domestic violence, parenting, and/ or mental health concerns that may require a neutral party to assist with the visitation process. In these cases, one or both Parents may be Ordered to Supervised Visitation.
Quite often, Parents will start off using a friend or family member to supervised the visits. This arrangement is usually complex and filled with problems related to relationship strains, alliances, biased reporting and monitors who do not understand how to properly document a visit. With such instances, the Parents and/or the Judge will decide that casual (called "nonprofessional") supervision does not work. That is when families begin their search for a Professional Provider of Supervised Visitation Services.
We can provide both TSV and TMV services both of which record keeping procedures, screening clients, monitoring and documenting visits, and dealing with issues that arise are noted.
Do I Need a Referral?
You do not need a referral. Many of our referrals come from attorneys. We also get cases from Agency for Children's Services (ACS), judges, and other mental health providers.
Things to Know!
TSV is not a replacement for family therapy, individual therapy, or reunification therapy. This service is a visitation and not a clinical service and therefore it is not billable to insurance companies. This service will require fees paid at the time of the service of which rates and responsible parties will be established prior to the visit.
