Specialist group therapy for psychological factors associated with fire setting: Evidence of a treatment effect from a non-randomised trial with male prisoners.What are they testing (identify units of analysis)
According to the study, there is a lack of a standardised therapy for addressing arsonist behavior despite the huge societal costs associated with arson.
