Annotation: The resource materials presented in this volume of the Juvenile Firesetter/Arson Control and Prevention Program are designed to be used with "Volume I: Guidelines for Implementation."
Abstract: These two volumes are the culmination of the Prototype Development Stage (Stage II) of the 2-year National Juvenile Firesetter/Arson Control and Prevention Program sponsored by the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention and the U.S. Fire Administration. The prototype program described in Volume I contains seven components: program management; screening, evaluating, and developing the intervention plan; intervention services; publicity and outreach; referral mechanisms; monitoring systems; and the development of relationships with the justice system. Volume II contains specific materials referenced in Volume I. Only five of the components have accompanying resource materials: program management; screening, evaluating, and developing the intervention plan; publicity and outreach; referral mechanisms; and monitoring systems. Each of the resource materials presented is prefaced by a brief description and discussion of how it is to be used. Additional resource materials and information about how to obtain these materials can be found in the "Guidelines for Implementation" and the "National Juvenile Firesetter/Arson Control and Prevention Program User Guide."
