Based on the proven technology of Multisystemic Therapy (MST), this unique book provides an exemplary approach to empowering communities to reduce youth violence and substance abuse and promote school success. Effective strategies for working with at-risk youth are embedded in a comprehensive framework that enlists the talents and resources of clinicians, human service professionals, neighborhood residents, community organizations, and outside stakeholders. Using an extended case example to illustrate all aspects of implementing MST on a neighborhood-wide scale, the volume covers empirical and clinical foundations, program planning, and strategies for building collaboration with key community players.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This book contains unusually informative, insightful, and practical information on developing and implementing effective juvenile delinquency programs in very troubled neighborhoods. Remarkably, it will appeal to practitioners, students, and researchers alike--a very rare quality. This is the most user-friendly book of its type I have seen. The format is excellent for optimizing learning. I particularly appreciated the concise introduction and concluding review of critical points in each chapter. In the classroom, this book would make a very appealing, appropriate supplemental text for courses in community psychology, social work, and juvenile justice."--James C. Howell, PhD, Department of Criminology and Criminal Justice, University of South Carolina

"Swenson and her colleagues have taken evidence-based interventions to a new level of sophistication and applied them in a culturally sensitive and empathetic way in a community setting. Detailed and practical, this book will be useful to students and professionals alike who are committed to providing quality services to underserved clients from diverse communities. The bar for all future intervention texts has just been raised by this important work."--Jon R. Conte, PhD, School of Social Work, University of Washington

"This book is extremely well written, in plain language. It contains a gold mine of descriptions concerning how to approach the challenging task of implementing a prevention intervention in a high-risk neighborhood in a sensitive and thoughtful fashion. I know of no other book that combines the application of a comprehensive, evidence-based intervention for high-risk youth with a thorough description of how to work from the grassroots in order to join effectively with local leaders. I highly recommend this book to any researcher, clinician, or policymaker interested in community-based prevention science."--Ray DeV. Peters, PhD, Better Beginnings, Better Futures Project, Queen's University, Canada
