    DAYS mission:             To provide a continuum of human services for all children, youth, and families. Position Summary:    To provide intensive, in-home and community-based MST therapy services to children and their families throughout Denver, Douglas, Adams, and Weld Counties. Multisystemic Therapy (MST) is an intensive family- and community-based treatment program that focuses on addressing all environmental systems that impact chronic juvenile offenders -- their homes and families, schools and teachers, neighborhoods and friends. MST recognizes that each system plays a critical role in a youth's world and each system requires attention when effective change is needed to improve the quality of life for youth and their families. MST has been proven effective at decreasing antisocial behaviors, arrest rates and out-of-home placements, while improving family relations and functioning. MST therapists concentrate on empowering parents and improving their effectiveness by identifying strengths and developing natural support systems and removing barriers. In the family-therapist collaboration, the family takes the lead in setting treatment goals and the therapist helps them to accomplish their goals. The qualified, selected applicant will carry a very small caseload, and work intensively with referred youth, their caregivers, juvenile court and other involved community resources.
