Behavioral Intervention Team (BIT)/ Threat Assessment Team (TAT) Training

Class Description

D. Stafford & Associates offers a 2.5-day Behavioral Intervention Team (BIT)/Threat Assessment Team (TAT) training course. This training course is designed for those who are new to a BIT or TAT team, as well as seasoned professionals. Day one will focus on understanding violence by examining mass casualty incidents, targeted violence on campus, risk factors, the “pathway to violence”, and other forms of campus violence. Day two will build upon the knowledge acquired in day one with a focus on practically using threat assessment strategies within campus teams. Specifically, day two will address key considerations in campus safety plans, legal issues in threat assessment, team dynamics, documentation, threat assessment process, and the impact on those who do this work. While each day will involve application of case studies and dissecting lessons learned, a greater emphasis on step-by-step application will be provided in comprehensive case studies that culminate on the final half day.

This training course is designed for those who are new to a BIT or TAT team, as well as seasoned professionals. This is particularly beneficial for staff in student conduct, dean of students, residential life counseling, and police.
