Description

In the late 1950s, the Youth Development Project was a specialized service for adolescents and their families, offered by the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston, Texas (Ritchie 1960). Families seeking treatment came from a considerable distance – “anywhere from 50 to 450 miles” (Ritchie 1960, p. 16) – and this presented special difficulties, as a regular weekly meeting over several months was not an option. The Multiple Impact Team (MIT) model started as a way to solve this problem of distance, but developed into a systemic intervention (MacGregor 1962; Ritchie 1960; MacGregor et al. 1964).
