At-risk children in the United States are often subject to court-ordered, supervised parenting time as their primary method of contact with one or more of their caregivers. The current model fails to provide opportunity for growth and improvement in parenting time interactions with these children. Courts often base permanent placement or custody decisions on the reports of the minimally-skilled observer of this parenting time. Adding a therapeutic component, along with a skilled interventionist, provides the family with a valuable service and a more cost-effective opportunity for parents to grow and to heal the relationships with their children.
