Home Stability

Families and parent-adolescent relationships are vitally important in a child's second decade of life. Multidimensional Family Therapy (MDFT) achieves changes in these family relationships and helps keep adolescents in the home.

MDFT was granted the highest possible scientific rating by the California Evidence-Based Clearinghouse for Child Welfare (CEBC), which works to improve the lives of children and families involved in the child welfare system.
