Description/Eligibility/Service Details
Description The Arson Prevention program for Children (TAPP-C) brings together fire service and mental health professionals to work with children, youth and their families to eliminate dangerous fire-related behaviours.  
Fire service professionals provide families with home fire-safety checks and fire-safety education. CAMH staff provide assessment and parent- and child-focused treatment. The treatment component of TAPP-C is a brief CBT-based intervention program with two modules: one for parents and caregivers and one for children and youth.  
Prior to providing the treatment component of TAPP-C, the child or youth’s firesetting behaviour is evaluated using a combination of specialized firesetting risk assessment and general mental health assessment. Based on the results of these assessments, children may be provided with the TAPP-C treatment component in combination with more general mental health treatment; other children, whose firesetting risk is determined to be low, may receive the TAPP-C treatment as a stand-alone intervention.
