Do you have a passion for working with children and families?

Community Solutions Inc., an agency whose core values are Integrity, Compassion, Connection and Service is

Multisystemic Therapy (MST) is the top internationally recognized evidenced based model for at risk youth supported by the US Department of Justice, National Institute of Health, and the United Nations Office of Drugs and Crime.

Community Solutions has partnered with the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services to provide MST to several regions and is looking for compassionate, dedicated therapists in the greater Dover area

As a Therapist you will receive ongoing training in the Multisystemic Therapy


model as you work with families, youth, their communities, and other key members of their ecology to implement MST as designed. Extensive research has proven the effectiveness of MST.

MST therapists do whatever it takes, via close collaboration with all involved, to address the needs of juveniles with serious criminal offenses, including and, in some cases, substance abuse.

You will empower families to address challenging and/or problematic behavior and to help youth aged 12 - 17 make life-transforming changes. Treatment progress is made through intensive interventions such as skill building, changing unhelpful family interactions, and increasing social support, to name a few.
