In recognition of her dedicated work to the juvenile firesetters population in the Legislature and as a Psychiatric Nurse, Representative Kay Khan will be the guest speaker and receive an award at The Northeast Juvenile Firesetting Conference today in Natick, MA. This conference is intended to explore new ideas and best practices to strengthen and protect the families that are affected by this issue.
About the Conference
The Northeast Juvenile Firesetting Conference began in 2006 in response to a need for collaboration, training, and shared resources for people in all fields working with juvenile firesetting in Massachusetts and the Northeast. Each year the conference strives to address topics relevant to our multi-disciplinary attendees and provides workshops that reflect current best practice in firesetting assessment and treatment. Based on last year's feedback, the 2012 theme focuses on the critical importance of providing, "from incident to outcome, " a range of services and interventions to families in order to strengthen their capacities to keep children safe. The conference will again bring together over 250 fire service, education, mental health, state agency/child protective service, burn care, law enforcement and juvenile justice professionals from the Northeast and across the U.S.
