REPRESENTING AN INTERDISCIPLINARY NETWORK
WHAT WE DO
CASVSP aims to represent an interdisciplinary network of multidisciplinary professionals committed to one unified statewide voice serving the diverse needs of professional providers of supervised visitation. CASVSP strives to help protect the best interests of parents and children through the development and creation of strategic collaborative partnerships amongst key stakeholders, organizations, and the court to advance excellent training and education programs, increase public awareness and understanding related to supervised visitation and exchange services, and promote and maintain professional ethical standards and standards of conduct in private, public, and court-communities to improve the provisions of service delivery.
The primary focus of CASVSP is to address state, regional, and localized needs of providers of supervised visitation and exchange services, work on policy and legislative initiatives or mandates relating to supervised visitation, and assist providers with compliance and adherence to Family Code section 3200.5 requirements and California’s Uniform Standards of Practice for Providers of Supervised Visitation.
In 2010, the California Association of Supervised Visitation Services Providers was founded by a small core group of court and community professionals seeking to promote high quality and excellence in service delivery, compliance with state standards of practice, and uniformity and consistency relating to implementation of the Uniform Standards of Practice for Providers of Supervised Visitation. The organization was created also in response to working with former Assembly Woman Fiona Ma's office as the sponsor of Assembly Bill 1674 that enacted Family Code section 3200.5. This commitment included the establishment of an organization focused directly on the needs and challenges of California providers and quality statewide training and education for professional providers.
