Abstract
Juvenile fire setters and bomb makers (JFSB) constitute an increasing public safety concern. Forensic psychological and clinical settings have relied heavily on assessment measures and various clinical tools while delivering pre-treatment and screening services that are designed to help deal with various JFSB issues. Research has led to evidenced based treatment programs like FATJAM that are often used to reduce destructive behavior and recidivism (i.e., threats to public safety). The traditional treatment of juveniles has been to use more of a reactive approach within those same clinical forensic settings. Motivation has been identified as being a critical intervention component for changing an individual?s unwanted behavior. This presentation aims to discuss how a motivational therapy orientation may be used to provide therapeutically-relevant changes in JFSBs. The presentation also reviews the use of pre-treatment groups that emphasize motivational therapy as a therapeutically-relevant strategy. The overall objective is to explain how pre-treatment motivational groups can result in desirable clinical changes (i.e., measured by subsequent risk assessments) by focusing on biopsychosociocultural factors through FATJAM interventions that incorporate a motivational group therapy component within a psychological forensic setting.
