While foundational in nature, this course offers much more than a basic overview of how a team functions.

Whether you are a new team just getting off the ground, or a seasoned team with a few years of experience under your belt, this course can help bring your team in line with best practices for behavioral intervention teams.

This course contains content related to: defining behavioral intervention teams, implementing school and/or district wide teams, using an objective risk rubric for all BIT referrals, developing appropriate interventions, utilizing mandated assessments, and marketing/advertising the team based on survey data, research, and literature in the fields of threat assessment, psychology and law enforcement. This course allows time for discussion and interactive case examples.

In this course, you will learn:

  • How to create, improve, and maximize BIT procedures in a K-12 setting in accordance with the NABITA Standards for Behavioral Intervention Teams.
  • How to engage the three key phases of a BIT: gather data, access, and intervene.
  • The importance of using an objective risk rubric in the assessment of risk and development of interventions on all cases.
  • Strategies for integrating NABITA’s standards of practice into operational procedures at their school.

Who should attend?

  • Schools seeking to bring their team in line with NABITA’s standards of practice
  • Both new teams and teams looking to formalize and improve their operations
  • Administrators seeking to start or improve a BIT at their school or in their district
