Prepare for Increased Student Mental Health Challenges & Minimize Liability Through an Integrated Campus Approach
A network of care can help students who are struggling be more successful through careful and deliberate case management. 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.
Our expert presenter conducts a fast-paced webinar on strategies and improvements to BAIT development and operations. You’ll come away with proven tools and strategies you can implement on your campus immediately in preparation for the increased challenges surrounding student mental health expected this fall.
Our world has changed. We must examine real issues and problems encountered by these teams, discuss the ways that teams are formed and utilized, and talk about areas where “blinders” can cause individuals to miss items that a team approach will likely catch. We will talk about students who say and do things that frighten other students or cause them to be upset by hate speech or threats of violence.
Understand the risks, implement strategies to minimize liability and take an institution-wide approach to student intervention. You’ll be able to effectively intervene in these difficult situations proactively, compassionately, and effectively, with an integrated campus approach.
As a result of this webinar, you will be able to:
- Examine existing BAIT structures on your campus and propose strategies for improvement – review best practices for forming and operating an effective Behavior Assessment and Intervention Team as a risk management tool on your campus.
- Explore proactive approaches to student success and behavioral intervention that you can implement in a way that meets your specific needs.
- Implement best practices for intervention – gain proven ideas for building an infrastructure that can address key issues with faculty and staff, as well as students.
- Understand the scope of the current student mental health challenges – be prepared so you can respond proactively and quickly when the need arises.
- Partner strategically with your Emergency Response Team to ensure a seamless approach to supporting student success – streamline your approach and minimize liability.
- Educate your campus community about your BAIT Team – gain key strategies for getting the word out so your outreach efforts reach all groups on campus.
