Originally developed to treat antisocial behavior, multisystemic therapy (MST) has emerged as a leading evidence-based treatment for serious emotional disturbance in children and adolescents. This clearly written manual presents the MST approach to working with this challenging population. Delineated are ways to develop and implement collaborative interventions to connect children and families to treatment and support networks, manage psychiatric emergencies, improve family functioning, and build needed social and educational skills. Special topics covered include the role of pharmacological interventions and the need for community-based safety plans for high-risk youths. Featuring a wealth of case material, the manual is extensively documented with findings from controlled outcome studies. It will be a valuable resource for mental health practitioners, agency administrators and caseworkers, clinical researchers, and students training in the use of evidence-based mental health treatments.

"This book is an excellent guide to good clinical practice, relevant whether or not clinicians wish to embark upon multisystemic therapy. It is full of enlightening guidelines to good practice....This book is very useful not only for the seasoned clinician wondering what to do next, but also has the MST approach backed up with evidence based trials to persuade the managers to take it on. I highly recommend it."--"Child and Adolescent Mental Health" .,."the book is a good example of a labour-intensive community psychiatric intervention using well-developed protocols and training for a notoriously difficult parent population. It has been well evaluated and, as implemented and researched by the authors, shows positive effects on family relations and functioning, increased school attendance and less disability from adolescent psychiatric disorder and decreased substance abuse. As such, it is essential reading for administrators and clinicians working with this population in the community."--"The Canadian Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Review" .,."an excellent summary from theory to implementation. It is well worth reading for all mental health care professionals and administrators who are not already experienced with the approach."--"Psychiatric Times""Youth with serious emotional disturbance and their families have been relatively ignored in the literature, in part because of the complexity of the social, environmental, and clinical conditions that tend to characterize their lives. This book fills a huge gap by describing in clear, cogent, and compelling terms an ecologically grounded intervention model for this population. The authors describe how, when, and why the MST approach can be applied in work with psychiatrically impaired youth, the modifications and refinements that enable it to be tailored to the unique needs of each individual, and the processes a therapist must put in motion to ensure optimal outcomes. The book also describes what has been learned from the results of a rigorous trial of MST with this population. This book is written for therapists and those who train therapists. It is a crucially important text for social work training programs, as well as programs in clinical and counseling psychology, health psychology, and medicine."--Kimberly Hoagwood, PhD, Department of Psychiatry, Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons
