Aims of presentation l.jpg

Aims of Presentation

  • To think about Personality Disorder from an adolescent perspective

  • To develop an understanding of the risk factors in the development of antisocial PD

  • An overview of MST and how it addresses these risk factors


Group exercise l.jpg

Group Exercise

  • In pairs identify one risk and one protective factors for the onset of behavioural problems in adolescence;

    • Individual

    • Family

    • School

    • Peer group

    • Community

  • Feedback on flipchart


Risk protective factors l.jpg

Risk & Protective Factors


Delinquency is a complex behaviour l.jpg

Common findings of 50+ years of research: delinquency and drug use are determined by multiple risk factors:

Family (low monitoring, high conflict, etc.)

Peer group (law-breaking peers, etc.)

School (dropout, low achievement, etc.)

Community ( supports,  transiency, etc.)

Individual (low verbal and social skills, etc.)

Delinquency is a Complex Behaviour

Theoretical assumptions l.jpg

Theoretical Assumptions

Children and adolescents live in a social ecology of interconnected systems that impact their behaviors in direct and indirect ways

These influences act in both directions (they are reciprocal and bi-directional)

Based on Bronfenbrenner, Haley and Minuchin

Implications for effective intervention l.jpg

Implications for Effective Intervention

The research on delinquency and substance use suggests that, to be most effective, services should be:

Comprehensive and have the capacity to address all of the relevant risk factors present for each youth and family

Individualised to the strengths and needs of each youth and family

Delivered in the naturally occurring systems and be implemented in “ecologically valid” ways


What is mst l.jpg

What is MST?

Intensive, goal oriented and time limited intervention

Community-based, family-driven

Targets the multiple causes of anti-social and criminal behaviour in young people

Highly structured clinical supervision and quality assurance processes

Strong track record of client engagement, retention and satisfaction


Who is the target population for mst l.jpg

Who is the target population for MST?

Family and key participants in the environment of young people

MST “client” is the entire ecology of the young person - family, peers, school, community

Age range 11-17 years

High risk of out-of-home placement eg. care, custody, residential school

Placement risk due to their behaviour at home / school / in the community

May be involved with the criminal justice system


What is mst12 l.jpg

What is MST?

Focus is on families as the solution

Focus on empowering the caregivers / parents to solve current and future problems

Parents are full collaborators in planning and delivering interventions

Assumption - Children’s behaviour is strongly influenced by their families, friends and communities (and vice versa)

Works in partnership with a combination of systems (parents, family, peers, school and community) to address risk factors


How does mst work l.jpg

How does MST work?

Assessing and understanding the factors contributing to identified problems

Having clear goals to work towards

Prioritising key factors and interventions

Interventions based on techniques that have strong evidence base:

Behaviour therapy

Parent management training

Cognitive behavior therapy

Pragmatic family therapies

Pharmacological interventions (e.g., for ADHD)

Supporting the parent/carer in devising strategies to target factors contributing to the young person’s behaviour


How is mst implemented l.jpg

How is MST implemented?

Single therapist works intensively with 4 families at a time

Meetings at least 2-3 times a week

Community and home based

Out-of-hours service run by the team which is available to families 24 hours a day, 7 days a week

Team has 3-4 therapists and clinical supervisor

Involvement typically ranges from 3 to 5 months


How is mst implemented15 l.jpg

How is MST implemented?

Team provides the family with a single point of contact

MST team deliver all treatment

Typically no services are referred outside the MST team

Never ending focus on engagement and alignment with the primary caregiver and other key stakeholders – addressing barriers

MST team must be able to have a lead role in clinical decision making for each case


Mst quality assurance system l.jpg

MST Quality Assurance System

Team comprised of range of professionals – multi-disciplinary/multi-agency

Structured training – orientation and regular boosters

Frequent professional development planning

Weekly clinical supervision and case review

Weekly consultation with consultant in USA

Research validated adherence process – for therapists and supervisor


What s different l.jpg

Traditional models

Individual (family)

Clinic-based

Fixed times

High caseloads – less intensive

Open-ended

Supervision

MST

Ecological

Home-based

Flexible/24 hour

Low caseloads – 3x weekly +

Fixed goal-driven

Quality assurance

What’s different?

NB Not better, just different approach to address a different need


Why does it need to be different l.jpg

Why does it need to be different?

  • Multi-determined nature of serious antisocial behaviour

  • Risk factors span the ecology in which the child is embedded

  • Families with complex problems struggle to access traditional services

  • High costs of antisocial behaviour – incarceration, placement, victimisation

  • Therapist adherence predicts outcome
