The Protection Clarification is a best-practice, treatment intervention specifically designed for non-offending caregivers of children who have been abused, exposed to substance abuse, domestic and/or community violence with the goal of strengthening the relationship between the child and
non-offending caregiver. The focus is on helping the non-offending caregiver address the needs of the child and strengthening them as a protective resource.
