Explore Case Studies to Handle Disturbing & Worrisome Behavior with Effective Response
Behavioral Assessment and Intervention Teams (BAITs) have become a necessary tool for the prevention and management of threatening and hostile situations in the college environment.
BAIT/CARE teams have taken on new purpose and meaning in the wake of the Pandemic. Colleges and Universities are seeing more and more students coming to campus with little to no social skills, and increased anxiety and depression. Behavioral problems have not diminished and, in fact, have become more pronounced in the last two years. BAIT/CARE teams must be prepared to “connect the dots” to make sure that students do not fall between the cracks. More importantly, a BAIT team could recognize and prevent violence on campus, should an individual demonstrate unstable thoughts of hurting others or themselves. BAIT teams must focus on behavior, and be prepared to Intervene, if needed.
Our expert presenter – Dr. Grant Azdell, Vice President for Student Affairs and Dean of Students at Randolph-Macon College and renowned consultant and author on crisis management and emergency planning – shares case studies on handling disturbing and worrisome behavior. He provides sample scenarios on topics including behavioral warning signs, conduct or residential concerns and how they translate into greater concern for your BAIT team, and how to address potentially problematic faculty and staff behavior. You’ll come away with proven tools and strategies for effective response that you can implement on your campus immediately.
