NEW RESEARCH! Effectiveness Trial of Treatment to Reduce Serious Antisocial Behavior in Emerging Adults with Mental IllnessDate Posted: Monday, August 22, 2016
The purpose of this study is to test the effectiveness of a promising intervention for emerging adults with mental illness and serious antisocial behavior for reducing antisocial behavior. It will test whether reductions in antisocial behavior are achieved through increasing self-regulation, engagement in school and/or work, stable housing, positive relationships, and reductions in mental health symptoms and substance use. The intervention, Multisystemic Therapy for Emerging Adults (MST-EA), is an adaptation of MST, a well-established, effective intervention to reduce antisocial behavior in adolescents.
