Janiva Willis, Youth Villages’ Charlotte, N.C., clinical supervisor, was recently honored at the Multisystemic Therapy (MST) International Conference in Charleston, S.C. She ranked in the top one percent of all MST therapists based upon her Therapist Adherence Measure (TAM) as rated by families. The TAM score predicts real-world, practical outcomes by assessing the counselor’s adherence to the MST treatment model.

“It was great to see MST being implemented all around the world and seeing the success rates in different areas of the country,” she said.

Janiva has served youth and families at Youth Villages since 2009 and is one of 20 people in the world to receive this honor. One of the many families Janiva helped succeed was featured in the Youth Villages newsletter New Heights; you can read Jaeqwaun’s story here.
