This chapter discusses the development and dissemination of information on the efficacy and effectiveness of one of the most prominent evidence-based practices for youth and families — multisystemic therapy (MST). MST has been widely implemented with families of juvenile delinquents and has been proposed as a solution to the perceived “failure” of family preservation services (FPS) in child welfare. The chapter presents a critique of the evidence supporting MST, articulates how evidence can be misused, and offers rigorous procedures for establishing the quality of studies.

Keywords:   multisystemic therapy, MST, family preservation services, FPS, child welfare research
