Multisystemic Therapy - Problem Sexual Behavior (MST-PSB)
MST-PSB is an evidenced-based, intensive home-based treatment model for youth, ages 10-17, exhibiting problem sexual behavior and other high-risk behaviors, at home, at school and in the community. The program addresses the multiple systems and factors that affect the youth’s behavior and focuses on improving the overall function of the family to maintain youth safely in the community. The program also supports youth returning to the community from incarceration or residential placement.
