With the help of Butler Institute for Families, we are working to optimize family contact visits between children and parents, as quality family contact visits are a key indicator of potential for family reunification. The Family Contact Best Practices Guide for Professionals was released in September 2019, followed by the first phase of training for professionals.  This is a tertiary prevention strategy.
