Multisystemic Therapy (MST) is a scientifically proven intervention for at-risk youth and their families. Therapists work in the home, school and community and are on call 24/7 to provide caregivers with the tools they need to transform the lives of troubled youth. Research demonstrates that MST reduces criminal activity and other undesirable behavior.
Functional Family Therapy
Functional Family Therapy (FFT) is an evidence-based intervention for youth and families. This high-quality, strength-focused family counseling model is designed primarily for at-risk youth who have been referred by the juvenile justice, mental health, school, or child welfare systems. Services are short-term and conducted in clinic and home settings and can also be provided in schools, child welfare facilities, probation and parole systems, and mental health facilities.
Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a client-centered intervention designed to enhance intrinsic motivation and to engage clients in the change process. Motivational Interviewing training gives staff the skills they need to work with clients who are unwilling or unable to change.
The Incredible Years
The Incredible Years is a series of interlocking, evidence-based programs for parents, children, and teachers, supported by over 30 years of research. The goal is to prevent and treat young children's behavior problems and promote their social, emotional, and academic competence. The programs are used worldwide in schools and mental health centers, and have been shown to work across cultures and socioeconomic groups.
Our evidence-based interventions are:
Our interventions are backed by decades of research, and the organizations who carry out the interventions follow strict ongoing adherence standards.
Out-of-home placement into justice systems, foster care, and residential mental health facilities are proven to be costly. Our interventions lessen the need for out-of-home placements and save community dollars.
Studies show that our evidence-based approaches demonstrate positive results long after program completion.
