While the concept of behavior modification is not new to higher education, the development of Behavioral Intervention Teams (BIT) to address concerning and escalating behaviors is a relatively new practice. BITs engage in three main functions: 1) Gathering data from the community; 2) Analyzing this data using objective rubrics, tools, and assessments; 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 risk. In this informative session, expert speaker Aaron Reese will introduce BIT and talk about how useful it can be for your organization. Much of the material presented, and the tools and publications made available to attendees will be provided by the National Behavioral Intervention Team Association (NaBITA).
