Develop a list of strengths and weaknesses for your “case” in each domain of family, individual, peer, school, and community. Consider the perspective/feedback you might get from each family member and from concerned others in the family’s ecology (e.g., the school, extended family).
Pick two drivers from each fit circle that you would prioritize for intervention and identify MST-compatible interventions that you would provide to begin to address change. Remember that ecological intervention is prioritized over individual or insight-oriented treatment focus. Make sure to consider individual/family/community strengths that you would draw upon to support/facilitate change. Refer to the nine principles of MST to make sure that the interventions you propose are compatible with the model and highlight the principles that are evident in your intervention.
