    April is Child Abuse Prevention Month

    Join us in raising awareness and helping bring solutions to the table.

    By now you have  seen the blue pinwheels all across Greenville and other areas as well.  These pinwheels help bring attention to the issues of Child Abuse and ways that it can be prevented.
    • Child abuse occurs at every socioeconomic level, across ethnic and cultural lines, within all religions and at all levels of education.
    • A report of child abuse is made every ten seconds
    • About 30% of abused and neglected children will later abuse their own children, continuing the horrible cycle of abuse
    • More than four children die every day as a result of child abuse

    Testimony from Supervised Visitation Network Director

    I wanted to share some thoughts from an amazing session we experienced at the Supervised Visitation Network Safety Summit in Greenville, SC.  I'd like to start by expressing my gratitude to our local member host, Family Bridges of Pendleton Place for Children and Families for their contribution to curriculum, instruction and coordination of guest presenters. Having experts in their fields speak to how their specific expertise interlaces with safety needs in supervised visitation, is an unique opportunity for SVN Members at Regional Trainings.

     

    It was an honor to have Sergeant Jennings Autrey of Greenville County Sheriff's office and Family Bridges director Teri McLaughlin speak to and model the importance of developing a plan for law enforcement and  Visitation providers collaborating  to increase safety for families in supervised visitation.  The importance of this effort was clearly demonstrated with review of recent tragedies at supervised visitations that might have been prevented with sound safety practices and responses identified and consistently implemented.  As we combined the knowledge of  batterer tactics and the fact that past behavior is the best predictor of future behavior , it became painfully evident that visitation services provided  without consistently implemented safety practices is a potentially lethal combination.
