Cayuga Centers brings Multisystemic Family Therapy and Functional Family Therapy-Therapeutic Case Management to Albany County

ALBANY, NY, USA, March 7, 2022 / -- As the longest-standing continuous provider of preventive family services in the region, Cayuga Centers has recently signed three contracts with the County of Albany Department of Children Youth and Families. A new program has been added and two existing programs have been expanded.

The new program is a Multisystemic Family Therapy (MST) program which is equipped to serve approximately 60 youth and families annually. The MST program’s main goal is to prevent further progression or entry into the juvenile justice system by improving family functioning, addressing emotional stability, concrete needs, and interpersonal skills of parents and youth. It will also increase protective factors while decreasing risk factors by removing barriers to treatment and fostering successful engagement by children and youth.

As for the extended programs, Cayuga Centers has renewed its contract for its long-standing Functional Family Therapy-Therapeutic Case Management (FFT-TCM) program, which will transition to the Functional Family Therapy model. The organization has also renewed a second contract for its Intensive Family Support (IFSP) program – IFSP will now incorporate the evidence-based tool, Motivational Interviewing (MI), in order to expand the tools available to the families they serve.

The organization is actively hiring Case Workers, Supervisors, Clinicians, and other positions to support the expansion of its programs in the Albany region.
