Welcome to In the Loop. The latest news from MST and our Network Partners.

microphone-image.pngStill Time to Register for MST Pre-Conference at 2016 Blueprints Conference

There’s no question our juvenile justice system is failing the youth of today. Not only are there too many kids entering the system, there are far too many being shuttled into a revolving door of incarceration. This comes at a high cost to everyone.

Every two years, policymakers, practitioners and researchers come together at the Blueprints for Healthy Youth Development Conference to support, guide and learn about evidence-based programs (EBPs) designed specifically to combat this failing system.

This year, Multisystemic Therapy (MST) is holding a pre-conference on April 11.

In Case You Missed It...

MST is sharing our work through social media, videos and blogs.
Be sure to connect with us!



Here is just some of what you have missed out on recently if you aren’t following us on social media.

A great re-post on Facebook of a Frontline article on juveniles in the justice system.

Also on Facebook, the #BetheGood campaign—MSTers around the world are sharing memes that represent being the change they want to see in the world. Here is one example from Joey Penman:



On Twitter, a re-post of an article about juveniles tried as adults says:
Should 16-year-olds be tried as adults?
There's an alternative that might lower crime rates.

We had a series of blogs about the presenters coming to the MST Blueprints Pre-conference, including one about Nell Bernstein, as well as a blog about how to sustain evidence-based practices.
