In 42 years of involvement with the issues of children and fire, I’ve learned that the most important things are: early identification and early intervention, establishing rapport with families, finding out the motivation for the behavior, and providing an intervention that will change that behavior. This book provides step-by-step guidance in exactly these keys to success.
