Multisystemic Therapy - Child Abuse and Neglect (MST-CAN)
Multi-Systemic Therapy-Child Abused and Neglect (MST-CAN) is an evidence based treatment created for children ages 6-17 years and families that come under the guidance of Child Protective Services (CPS) due to physical abuse and/or neglect. While traditionally, treatment for children experiencing abuse or neglect is focused on the individual. However, research shows that the factors leading to physical abuse and neglect are complex and interconnected, involving family, schools, and communities. MST-CAN provides a holistic approach to keep the child safe and work toward healing the family.
