About the Safeguard Program
Clinical Care Associates Safeguard Program was developed for the sole purpose of providing a safe environment for all children that are or will be attending family reunification through supervised visitations. Under the child safety guidelines already established by State agencies, such as Child Protective Services, Clinical Care Associates’ Safeguard Program enhances those guidelines by providing additional conditions to the supervised visitation process with mandated clients.
Safeguard candidates attend a 2 day seminar that consists of a psycho-educational screening of each candidate’s eligibility as a child visitation supervisor. Through inter-agency cooperation, information is shared about each potential candidate. Inter-agency information on child visitation supervision is ongoing for as long as such supervision is ordered by the referring agency and or the Court.
Clinical Care Associates’ Safeguard Program focuses on making child protection an integral part of existing practices for managing and preventing risk for children who are or will be going through the process of family reunification.
- protect all children from physical and emotional harm, including all forms of physical and mental violence, injury or abuse (including sexual abuse), neglect or negligent treatment, maltreatment or exploitation.
- prevent, reduce, manage and, where possible, avoid risks relating to children and young people.
Our Safeguard Program is offered to potential candidates that are seeking child visitation supervision.
The Safeguard Program is presented in a series of modules that include background checks of potential candidates, child safety education, physical, psychological, emotional and child sexual abuse symptomatology and prevention.
“GOOD CHILD SUPERVISION LEADS TO A CHILD’S SAFETY”
Poor Safeguards could lead to the onset or perpetuation of child abuse, therefore, it is imperative to provide children with a safe environment that could facilitate the visitation process. It is just as important to provide all adults that are willing to participate in the child visitation supervision process, with complete knowledge of the responsibilities that entails such supervised visits.
