This two day workshop will provide attendees with the latest knowledge on deliberate firesetting including common characteristics of and theoretical explanations for adult firesetting, current evidence-based approaches for assessment and treatment of adult deliberate firesetting including psychometric tools that can assist in identification of treatment needs, and current best practice in risk assessment. The workshop will also provide attendees with the practical knowledge to be able to successfully deliver either the Firesetting Intervention Program for Prisoners (FIPP) (for prisons) or the Firesetting Intervention Programme for Mentally Disordered Offenders (FIP-MO) (for forensic mental health settings) specialist treatment programmes for adult deliberate firesetting.
Please note: To be able to deliver either the FIPP or FIP-MO, involvement of a registered practitioner (e.g., psychologist) is required. Attendees are required to attend both days of training.
The attendance fee includes a copy of either the FIP-MO or FIPP manual for all delegates along with reading and training materials. Delegates select in advance which programme manual they would like to receive. Input from a registered psychologist is required to deliver the FIPP and FIP-MO programmes.
