Youth & Family Multisystemic Therapy Services

MultiSystemic Therapy (MST) is an evidence-based practice, with extensive statistical data to prove its effectiveness for treating youth with significant behavioral challenges. MST is a family and home-based treatment that focuses on improving youth functioning in their natural settings – home, school, and community. MST is designed to be a comprehensive intervention that focuses on all of the systems which impact a youth’s life. For this reason, individual and group therapy are not recommended as adjunct services during the time a youth is receiving MST.

MST Treatment Principles:

  • Partner with families by identifying strengths, developing natural support systems, and removing barriers that interfere with their capacity to function effectively as parents.
  • Promote positive social behaviors while decreasing antisocial behaviors.
  • Continuously evaluate the effectiveness of interventions, with weekly renegotiation of strategies as needed to achieve successful outcomes.
