Helping Children Transition as Their Family Dynamics Change
Therapeutic Supervised Parenting Time
The Layne Project, Inc. is proud to announce we are now offering Therapeutic Supervised Parenting Time.
Supervised Parenting Time (SPT) is frequently offered to families in need of a third party to ensure safety. The main focus of SPT is to create a safe place for children and parents to enjoy their time together.
Therapeutic Supervised Parenting Time (T-SPT) is available to families that require therapeutic intervention in order to have successful parenting time.
T-SPT may be court ordered but it is not required.
T-SPT begins with a similar intake process which current Layne Project Families are already accustomed. A referral is received, the family is contacted and an initial assessment with just the parent(s) referred for T-SPT is scheduled.
The second meeting is an observation with the parent(s) and child. This observation serves as a baseline for The Layne Project to identify the current strengths and areas to work on for each parent.
Following the second meeting, another parent meeting is held in order to review observations from the first parent/child session as well as to introduce new skills to begin practicing during T-SPT.
T-SPT will end when the Court decides, or, if not court ordered, when the family or other referring party deems appropriate. For the sake of consistency, only the parenting sessions where the parent and child were face to face will be counted as a therapeutic visit. Other sessions will be referred to as parent meetings.
The Layne Project will continue to provide reports as requested. The reports will continue to report on observation of parent-child interactions as well as skills taught and acquired. For T-SPT, The Layne Project will NOT make recommendations.
