CARE Team Manual 2.0: Higher Education Edition

Need to write a Policy and Procedure Manual for your BIT or CARE Team? There is no need to reinvent the wheel – use ours!

NABITA has written extensively on Behavioral Intervention Teams (BITs), behavioral crisis response, and threat assessment. Over time, we have found that many teams struggle to develop a policies and procedures manual. Guidelines can be labor-intensive to create, and BITs are often pulled to more pressing assessment and intervention needs which prevent them from investing the time and effort necessary to create a comprehensive guiding document. 

NABITA published the first version of the CARE Manual in 2017, after Aaron “Chip” Reese, NABITA’s Associate Executive Director and Dean of Students at Columbus State University at the time, recognized that he was frequently sharing his team’s manual as a guide for other schools and that an official NABITA template might benefit the field. Now, in 2020, we are revisiting the original CARE Manual and updating it to reflect the standards of practice outlined in NABITA’s 2019 Standards for Behavioral Intervention Teams, the 2019 updated NABITA Risk Rubric, and other shifts in the field.
