Multisystemic Therapy is a preventive programme aimed at 11-17 year olds and their families. These young people present with severe behavioural problems and are often at risk of being placed in care or custody. The programme works intensively with these families in their community for between 3 and 5 months. It takes an ecological, multi-dimensional approach that addresses strengths and difficulties in all areas of the child and family functioning.
The programme aims to improve discipline and supervision practices among parents and carers to help:
- increase the young person’s involvement with pro-social peers
- improve school performance
- reduce anti-social behaviour and substance misuse.
The programme uses evidence based interventions, including behavioural, cognitive and family therapy and provides a high level of training and supervision for clinical teams
