Multisystemic therapy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Multisystemic Therapy (MST) (so-named because it addresses the different systems in an adolescent's life) is an intensive, family-focused and community-based treatment program for chronic and violent youth. The evidence-based therapy is goal oriented and aims at helping caregivers manage and nurture their challenging adolescents more effectively.

While the most widely disseminated form of MST is juvenile justice, which addresses the problems of adolescents who typically have significant histories of committing crime, there are variations that deal with such issues as substance abuse, problem sexual behavior, abuse and neglect, psychiatric disorders and a range of other serious behavioral issues.

The seeds from which MST grew were planted in the 1970s when Dr. Scott W. Henggeler was getting his Ph.D. at the University of Virginia and beginning his professional career at Memphis State University. Out-of-home placements, such as juvenile detention, residential treatment, psychiatric hospitalization and boot camps, have proved largely ineffective in achieving positive and lasting results.[1] Out-of-home placements may be unsuccessful because the adolescent returns home to the same conditions that were there before he or she left. The youth often resumes drug use, stealing, truancy, staying out late or all night with other out-of-control youths. Added to this mix is the juvenile offender may have picked up new ideas for criminal activities while in out-of-home placement.
