Supervised Visitation Literature Review

Inspire Action conducted a literature review of the current research in the field, compiling promising practices that would contribute to the successful development of “Change is Possible: An Enhanced Model of Supervised Visitation for Families Impact by Domestic Violence”.

The literature review included research in the areas of supervised visitation, therapeutic interventions in supervised visitation, interventions with children exposed to domestic violence, domestic violence informed therapy with families, parent and child trauma-informed therapy, interventions with men who use violence in their intimate partner relationships, and differential approaches to working with system involved families.

From our research, we have been able to cull from an extensive review of the literature to support the development of a varied and viable method of creating an enhanced model of supervised visitation for families who have experienced/lived with violence from their parents and partners. The most relevant research can be found in our literature review.
