This chapter covers multisystemic therapy, which is considered a form of family therapy but extends beyond it to the numerous systems in which the adolescent is embedded that serve to maintain and impact delinquent behavior. These systems include the individual youth, the parent, the peer group, the neighborhood, and the school setting. The chapter will be organized along goals and interventions at these system levels using a case study as a basis.

Keywords:   multisystemic therapy, Bronfenbrenner, family therapy, family preservation, juvenile offending
