Fathering After Violence: Working with Abusive Fathers in Supervised Visitation

General Material

This guide was developed to assist Safe Havens grantees who want to enhance the safety and well-being of women and children by working more deliberately with abusive fathers who use the centers to visit their children. These interventions are based on the learnings from the Fathering After Violence Initiative, developed by the Family Violence Prevention Fund (FVPF) and five current and past SVP grantees with funding from the Office of Violence Against Women (OVW).

The work described in this guide is grounded on two key premises: Men who use violence can be held accountable for their behavior and simultaneously be encouraged to change it; and women and children can benefit from this approach.
