Multisystemic Therapy for Problem Sexual Behavior (MST-PSB)

Multisystemic Therapy for Problem Sexual Behavior (MST-PSB) is a comprehensive treatment program delivered in the client’s natural environment (home, school and community) to improve outcomes. The program has been adapted to meet the unique needs of clients with problem sexual behaviors.

The program includes:

  • Intensive safety planning
  • Structural and strategic family therapy
  • Social skills training
  • Specialized approaches

Program philosophy

Intervention strategies include family therapy, behavior management training and cognitive behavior therapy. These strategies aim to develop our client’s competence by improving the relationships, interactions, and skills of those who surround them, especially family members.

BGV therapists have small caseloads and on-call services are provided for clients and their families seven days per week around the clock to provide first response in crisis situations.

Our program staff work to empower parents and improve their effectiveness by identifying strengths, developing natural support systems, and addressing and removing barriers to success. Parents learn skills that assist them with meeting current and future challenges.

Treatment is provided multiple times per week for an average of 5 to 7 months, as determined by need.
