Our goal for supervised visits is to allow parents to play with, listen to, and connect with their child(ren), and to model healthy behavior in a safe, inviting and comfortable environment.
"Nurturing Parenting" is a group-based program where parents learn about recognizing and understanding feelings.
FSN provides materials about child development and helps participants learn nurturing parenting routines, ways to encourage appropriate behaviors, as well as alternatives to abuse and neglect.
BETWEEN TWO HOMES COPARENTING COURSE
Coparenting is far more than just never married, separated or divorced parents raising children between homes. It's grandparents, kinship care, Forster parents, etc...parenting children together. This course teaches tools that will help keep the children out of the middle.
These services are provided in the home with a trained Family Support Specialist. The FSN Specialist will work with families to increase their capabilities to nurture their children in a safe and stable environment along with promoting
positive parent-child interactions and referring families to area resources that can help them meet their needs.
Intermountain Deaconess Children's Services provides out patient mental health counseling to the children and families we service, both through face to face sessions as well as Telehealth services.
