MST-FIT (Multi-systemic Therapy- Family Integrated Transitions) is an adaption of standard MST that provides intensive family and community based treatment that addresses the multiple determinants of serious antisocial behavior in juvenile delinquents and offenders. MST-FIT is uniquely designed to target youth returning from juvenile detention centers or similar placements with added treatment components to increase positive outcomes for this population. MST addresses the multiple factors known to be related to delinquency across the key settings, or systems, within which youth are embedded (e.g. family, peers, school, neighborhood). MST-FIT starts this process by initiating treatment for the youth and the family while the youth is still in placement. Similar to standard MST, MST-FIT strives to promote behavior change in the youth’s natural environment, using the strengths of each system to facilitate change. The MST model promotes personal responsibility, education, work ethic, community responsibility and an intolerance of violence and prejudice.
