1 MST’s analytical model And a clinical case


3 MST Treatment Principles
1. Finding the Fit The primary purpose of assessment is to understand the “fit” between the identified problems and their broader systemic context. 2. Positive & Strength Focused Therapeutic contacts should emphasize the positive and should use systemic strengths as levers for change. 3. Increasing Responsibility Interventions should be designed to promote responsibility and decrease irresponsible behavior among family members. 4. Present-focused, Action-oriented & Well-defined Interventions should be present-focused and action-oriented, targeting specific and well-defined problems. 5. Targeting Sequences Interventions should target sequences of behavior within and between multiple systems that maintain identified problems. 6. Developmentally Appropriate Interventions should be developmentally appropriate and fit the developmental needs of the youth. 7. Continuous Effort Interventions should be designed to require daily or weekly effort by family members. 8. Evaluation and Accountability Interventions efficacy is evaluated continuously from multiple perspectives, with providers assuming accountability for overcoming barriers to successful outcomes. 9. Generalization Interventions should be designed to promote treatment generalization and long-term maintenance of therapeutic change by empowering care givers to address family members’ needs across multiple systemic contexts.
