ABSTRACT

Coffee Break Training: Education as an Intervention Strategy in a Youth Firesetting Intervention Program   [open pdf - 84KB]

"The majority of cases identified by a youth firesetting intervention program will be classified as 'some risk.' Curiosity or experimentation is the prime motive for firesetting as defined in the 'some risk' category. 'Definite or extreme risk' firesetting situations also require educational intervention. However, sometimes the education will follow a referral for other types of interventions, such as clinical support or juvenile justice. The goal of fire safety education in a youth firesetting intervention program is to give children and adolescents information to make the right decisions so that future firesetting incidents do not occur."
