The Brandon Centre (BC) has developed SIT (Systemic Integrative Treatment) following many years’ experience of working with the families of children and adolescents displaying a range of problem behaviours. The Centre undertook the first clinical trial of Multisystemic Therapy (MST) in the UK in 2003, and participated in the first clinical trial of MST for problem sexual behaviour (MST PSB) in 2011. It has also been licensed to provide MST substance abuse (MST SA). The Centre’s MST service has been commissioned by many local authorities including Camden, Ealing, Enfield, Haringey, Islington, Lambeth and Waltham Forest. BC SIT has been developed as a new alternative to MST and is the culmination of 14 years’ experience in delivering MST.
