Case Study: DISC - Using Family Therapy to Reduce Offending

Case studies

This case study focuses on Developing Initiatives for Support in the Community (DISC), and the work it carries out with young offenders, those at-risk of offending and other vulnerable groups. Their approach is based on an intervention which involves all family members and has been shown to be very effective at helping families and particularly young people address their underlying problems, improve outcomes and reduce offending.
