Having specialised in the field of child firesetting behaviour for nearly two decades, criminologist Joanna Foster will draw upon both the available research and her frontline client work to explore five key areas parents and professionals should know when thinking about children and fire.
The webinar will be of particular interest to parents, carers, educational psychologists, teachers, pastoral support workers and SEND co-ordinators.
Learning outcomes include:
An overview of why children and teenagers set fires;
Insight on how this behaviour is effectively addressed;
Available sources of support and intervention.
With time set aside for questions and open discussion, the webinar provides a rare opportunity for parents and professionals to come together and debate an often much-misunderstood behaviour that can cause fear and fascination in equal measure.
