Subject:Re: Best Practices for Parent-Child Visitation

And while we're promoting useful tools and strategies to guide the visitation/reunification process, several chapters in Behavior Analysis Metrics & Applications for the Preservation and Reunification of Families (see www.shenvalpress.com ) address different facets of the issue. One chapter ( Chapter 4 "...A Tale of Two Families") describes the particulars involved in a successful reunification effort. Another describes a controlled failure in the visitation reunification process (Chapter 18, "Controlled Failure...Because the Circle May Be Broken") and another describes strategies for reuniting a child with his family after a period of residential placement (Chapter 29 "Reunification Across the Great Divide: Matching the Metrics Between Home and Residential Placement"). All offer empirical demonstrations of the visitation/reunification effort. Finally, Chapter 34 ("Bates, Sauders, et al vs Illinois Dept of Children and Family Services) presents the findings of an statewide analysis ordered by federal court of Illinois' effort to promote visitation.
