About The Program
When youth are struggling with problem behaviors, it is important to recognize that their struggles are multidimensional and can stem from a variety of influences. Through The Villages Multisystemic Therapy (MST) program, we recognize the relationship between these influences and work to help youth ages 12-18 on probation make the changes they need to live healthy, productive lives.MST is a scientifically proven intervention to at-risk youth that promotes behavioral shifts in their environments, focusing on the strengths of the individual, family and extra-familial systems to promote positive change.
