8th Annual Northeast Youth Firesetting Conference:
Who’s Taking the Wheel?:
Roadmap to Youth-Guided Interventions


Thursday, May 15 & Friday, May 16, 2014
Hampton Inn | Boston/Natick, MA



Responsive interventions are driven by input and participation by youth and families receiving services. “Youth-Guided Care” is a burgeoning concept driven by the belief that youth must be empowered, educated, and given a decision-making role in their own care. Youth-guided care validates youth and family voices and offers a platform for youth to shape intervention and treatment services. This year’s conference, Who’s Taking the Wheel?: Roadmap to Youth-guided Interventions, highlights opportunities within firesetting intervention to incorporate youth-focused programming and principles.

About the Conference


"Who’s Taking the Wheel?: Roadmap to Youth-Guided Interventions”


“Change occurs only when individuals take personal responsibility and begin to do things differently.”

Responsive interventions are driven by input and participation by youth and families receiving services. “Youth-Guided Care” is a burgeoning concept driven by the belief that youth must be empowered, educated, and given a decision-making role in their own care. Youth-guided care validates youth and family voices and offers a platform for youth to shape intervention and treatment services. This year’s conference, Who’s Taking the Wheel?: Roadmap to Youth-guided Interventions, highlights opportunities within firesetting intervention to incorporate youth-focused programming and principles.

For the first time, the conference will offer a 4-hour advanced workshop open to 80 registrants seeking in-depth interviewing techniques and role-play, hosted by FirePsych, Inc., experts in firesetting assessments.

At this 8th annual conference, national experts and youth, themselves, will share strategies for professionals who strive to engage youth as partners in intervention, and help youth succeed at eliminating the negative choices that lead to problem firesetting. In the spirit of interdisciplinary collaboration, the conference is hosted by Brandon, MaSAFE, FirePsych, Inc., and Telamon.
