Although the idea of behavior modification is not new to higher education, the development of Behavioral Intervention Teams (BIT) to address escalating and concerning behaviors is a new practice. There are three main functions that BITs engage in: 1) Collecting data from the community; 2) Examining the data using tools, assessments and objective rubrics; and 3) Intervening and following up based on the level of risk resulting from the assessment process. This is an on-going and circular process that assesses any interventions based on their effectiveness, new data, and evaluation of risks.
However, this process can become confusing quickly because there are many moving parts related to an active BIT case, most of which are very dynamic in nature. In this session by expert speaker Dr. Aaron “Chip” Reese, Ed.D., you will gain an understanding of how to conduct an outcome based BIT meeting.
You will receive the latest whitepapers on best practices developed by the National Behavioral Intervention Team Association (NaBITA) and a copy of the De-escalation Decision Tree (D2T) developed by Dr. Reese to assist teams in BIT meeting management. Also, real cases will be used as examples to demonstrate case flow management.
