There is a dearth of published studies on the treatment of arson in adults. A cognitive-behavioural model of the fire-setting of a young man with a mild learning disability and facial disfigurement is described. On the basis of the model, a comprehensive package of treatment, including facial surgery, social skills and assertiveness training, alternative coping strategies, and 'assisted' covert sensitisation, was carried out. At follow-up, 48 months after moving to an environment which was not secure, there was no evidence that the man had either set further fires or made hoax calls to the fire brigade.
