SVN Annual Conference

B Engaged
B Collaborative
B Global

SVN providers are quite diverse, hailing from many different countries, states, provinces, and court jurisdictions. Although we are doing this work from various perspectives and viewpoints, we share the vision that vulnerable families who need supervised visitation services should have access to competent, well-trained providers who put safety first.

In 2018 The SVN Annual Conference will highlight a Global Approach to helping the families we serve.

Global, in that Supervised Visitation/Access is provided all around the world and we can enrich all of our programs by expanding our horizons and learning different ways to do this work.

Global, in that we must recognize our role within the larger framework and systems under which we operate, and enhance how we collaborate in them.
