Adequate summary for informal assessment only, inadequate treatment section.,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Drawn to the Flame: Assessment and Treatment of Juvenile Firesetting Behavior (Practitioner's Resource Series) (Paperback)
I'll just briefly diverge somewhat from Mr. Lassiter above to say that while the "bulk" of this slim book provides a solid introduction to the issues for informal assessment (falling short of sufficient depth for formal assessment), the very brief section on treatment is completely inadequate if you are a clinician looking for concrete help planning intervention, and is not a particularly good resource for further exploration. There is much more information available on treatment than is even hinted at in this book, even after a brief time with Google: to place treatment in the title of this book is misleading. For context, I'm the clinical supervisor for a family therapy program, and a Licensed Professional Counselor.
That this book was published as part of the Practitioner's Resource Series promises more than it delivers. This was my first foray into Amazon's offerings on the topic, and I'll keep looking.
