Creating Opportunities for Safety and Change in Supervised Visitation Programs: A Policy Framework for Engaging Men Who Use Violence
FUTURES, in partnership with Inspire Action for Social Change, developed a framework designed to help supervised visitation providers and their community partners create a more institutionalized and seamless approach to engaging with men who use violence. Additionally, this framework aims to shift policy and practice across sectors working to end violence against women and children.
This policy paper builds on the work of Fathering After Violence, a national initiative that aims to help end violence against women by motivating men to renounce their abuse and become better parents. Based on initial findings, this document aims to deepen our practice, intention, and ability to hold men who use violence accountable while providing meaningful and thoughtful opportunities for change and healing.
