One Step Forward
Lessons Learned from a Randomized Study of Multisystemic Therapy (MST) in Canada
Alison Cunnningham (2002)
Funded by the National Crime Prevention Centre in Ottawa, this 32-page report presents interim results of a four-year randomized study of multisystemic therapy (MST) in four areas of Ontario. The lessons learned include how the wrong conclusion would have been made about MST if a less rigorous methodology had been used. These points are illustrated using the follow-up data available in January, 2002. This document will be helpful for researchers conducting randomized field studies. Policy makers will benefit from understand how research can be used to improve programming. The final results of the three-year follow-up were released in 2006.
