Multisystemic Therapy(MST)

An intensive family and community based treatment program that focuses on addressing all environmental systems that impact chronic and violent juvenile offenders.

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.

  • MST clinicians go to where the child is and are on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week
  • They work intensively with parents and caregivers to put them in control
  • The therapist works with the caregivers to keep the adolescent focused on school and gaining job skills
  • The therapist and caregivers introduce the youth to sports and recreational activities as an alternative to hanging out
