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.
