STAY* – A brief intervention for families of adolescents with disruptive behaviors
February 25, 2019
STAY is a brief intervention for families with adolescents (11+) experiencing moderate disruptive behaviors and/or other co-morbid mental health issues (depression, anxiety). The STAY model uses a hybrid of evidence-based strategies and techniques that include parent management interventions and components of cognitive behavioral therapy which are delivered through a multi-step approach over the course of 4-8 sessions. At the conclusion of the 4-8 sessions, guidance is provided as to how to transition a family into an extended treatment, if needed.
STAY was originally developed for families with adolescents who are experiencing disruptive behaviors that are causing family distress but may not require a more intensive intervention. It can also be used as a method of engaging the family in the youth’s mental health treatment for other co-morbid conditions that are contributing to family conflict and/or distress.
