About the Model The Brandon Centre's Systemic Integrative Treatment (SIT) model has been developed in accordance with NICE guidelines for treating conduct disorder and harmful sexual behaviour. It is an intensive community based family treatment service, developed by the Brandon Centre to achieve lasting change in children and adolescence (age 8yrs-16yrs) with moderate to severe behavioural difficulties. The team works collaboratively with parents in a non-judgmental way to empower them to regain control of their childs difficult behaviour. This is achieved by building on their strengths and providing families with the tools and confidence to deal with current and future problems and reducing the risk of further harmful, antisocial and offending behaviours. The service also works across multiple systems where the behaviour occurs including, schools, peer group and the community. There are two phases to the intervention. Phase 1: intensive treatment delivery, which will include 2 - 3 visits per week and can last up to 6 months. Phase 2 can extend total treatment time for up to one year, and includes a minimum of 10 booster sessions with the family to sustain progress (with the frequency of these sessions tapering off gradually over 6 months), phone/ video-call check ins, attendance at professional meetings, and ongoing consultation with referrers and key professionals in collaboration with the Phase 1 therapist.
