“Henggeler and his colleagues have broken new ground with this clear, detailed road map for implementing multisystemic therapy. Building on a quarter-century of research, practice, and successful replication, they have distilled the core principles and interventions of this alternative to the failed policy of indiscriminate incarceration for troubled young people. This is a major contribution in a field sorely in need of evidence-based interventions.”

“This impressive second edition builds upon new research and clinical experience to expand and enrich a classic guide. I enthusiastically recommend this book to all of my colleagues in the mental health field. It is an excellent text for family therapy courses and for courses on child and adolescent treatment in psychology, social work, counseling, and marriage and family therapy training programs. It will be required reading for all of my students who are counselors and therapists in training.”

“Henggeler et al. offer clear examples and excellent detail about the theoretical underpinnings and practical application of the MST treatment model. The reader is given a thorough understanding of the complex causes of antisocial behavior and how these translate into the development of individualized family assessments and treatment plans. This second edition is a great resource for practitioners, students, and researchers who want to learn how data-based theories can be used to drive clinical conceptualizations and practices that achieve transformative outcomes for youth and families.”
