Collaborative therapeutics views each actor as embedded within multiple interconnected systems.
It targets risks and protective factors both of the individual and his or her context. Collaborative interventions must have the flexibility to attenuate the multiple known determinants of poverty problems (risk factors), while enhancing protective factors. Effective intervention must have the capacity to intervene comprehensively at multiple levels.
The Multisystemic Therapy illustrates the relation between an overal treatment model and specific empirically-based treatment approaches that are focused on a limited aspect of a social ecology.
