At the Brief Strategic Family Therapy Institute, Dr. Muir has helped develop therapeutic models for intervention in youth with substance use and behavioral issues that have been adopted by Maria Ungdom, a Swedish treatment facility. Dr. Muir is a minority research fellow of the National Institutes of Mental Health and a nationally-recognized speaker on youth and families.
