Girls in the Juvenile Justice System

Following the larger relative decline in arrests of boys, the percent of arrests involving girls has increased since the 1990s. Research has revealed the various adversities many girls face as well as their unique responses to trauma that place them at risk for entering the system.

Multisystemic Therapy (MST) is a family-and-community-based alternative to juvenile incarceration that strives to keep youth safely at home. If you are interested in bringing MST to your community, contact us here.
