Behavioral Intervention: Best Practices
At this conference, we have looked topically at issues of legal compliance, violence prevention, mental health issues, suicide, and related, pressing issues of campus safety. In this session, Brett Sokolow weaves together these disparate threads to press the concept of effective behavioral intervention as the best chance colleges and universities have at preventing preventable violence. He will explain the functionality of behavioral intervention teams, and discuss the best practices that are emerging across the country as teams form, operate, train and interact with and educate their communities. What role do these teams play? How much authority do they have? Do they replace student conduct systems? How do they interact with campus crisis and emergency response teams? What should be reported to them, and what should they do with that information? This session will include Q&A with the audience.
