In our exploration of the literature, we found that there is little controversy in research regarding the value of parental visitation in determining a child’s return to the home. There exists an assumption of “reasonable efforts” for parental visitation in most case plans. However, variations occur in how the plan is developed and presented, and whether visitation is encouraged. What follows is a collection of journal article summaries, highlighting concerns and questions on visitation planning and practice. We have also spotlighted a local pilot project.
Practice Notes was developed in collaboration between CASCW affiliates and public child welfare practitioners. They were intended as a reference for practitioners, linking research with best practices. Issues were published between 1997 and 2010.
