To understand how MST works with a youth in trouble, you must understand how MST works with the whole system
“Why aren’t you working with my child? He’s the one who got in trouble and is causing all the problems, not me!”
“I heard MST never does individual treatment with the individual offender. Is that true?”
Because Multisystemic Therapy (MST) draws the whole family and community into the treatment, some people think the teen with the unacceptable behavior gets no individual attention. Nothing could be further from the truth.
