Divorce is a difficult process. It can be especially hard for children. Investing in a co-parenting curriculum can strengthen and develop better communication channels, normalize emotions, and keep focused on the goal of maintaining a relationship with a co-parent that will foster a nurturing, and healthy environment for children. This class will help to shift the focus from personal to family; keeping kids safe and strong.
Supervised visitation is when the noncustodial parent can visit with the child only when supervised by another adult. It is used to keep the child safe and support the parent/child relationship at the same time. If supervised visitation is necessary, the court will order it and it will be a part of the parenting plan. A special type of visitation is a Supervised Therapeutic Visit. In these visits, the parent has developed goals and receives coaching and feedback during and after the visit to help them reach their parenting goals. Hempfield supervised visitation and supervised therapeutic visitation can be provided on-site or in the community.

Multisystemic Therapy (MST) is an intensive family- and community-based treatment program that focuses on addressing all environmental systems that impact chronic and violent juvenile offenders -- their homes and families, schools and teachers, neighborhoods and friends. MST recognizes that each system plays a critical role in a youth's world and each system requires attention when effective change is needed to improve the quality of life for youth and their families. MST works with the toughest offenders ages 12 through 17 who have a very long history of arrests.
