Join Dr. Van Brunt as he walks you through the step-by-step process of assessing the violence risk in two different cases that have occurred on college campuses. This advanced program is particularly useful for Behavioral Intervention Teams and Threat Assessment Teams that have been in existence for quite some time and are looking for new training materials and tabletop exercises to walk the team through.

Unlike Threat 101, these cases will be be more challenging and will involve multiple departments and complicating factors such as Title IX overlap and social media risk. Using a combination of the NaBITA risk rubric along with the Structured Interview for Violence Risk Assessment (SVIRA-35), Dr. Van Brunt will walk participants through the a three phase process including data gathering, applying the rubric and intervention to help better those tasked with assessing threat and violence on a college campus.

This unique training program will allow participants to read through the case study for themselves before participating in the discussion and consider how their team, law enforcement, student conduct or counseling center might handle the case. By coming prepared to the online training session, your campus may then follow the case and see how Dr. Van Brunt would walk through the examples using NaBITAs research-based objective tools.

Case Sample Narratives:

Narrative 1:

Blair a first-year student and Jack who is in his junior year began a new relationship at the start of the fall semester. Jack demonstrates increasing intimate partner violence (IPV) behaviors toward Blair culminating in a public assault. Blair breaks up with him and several weeks later sends a picture message of her, half-naked with one of his friends from the swim team to make him hurt like he hurt her.

The case unfolds over four stages. During the first phase, Jack demonstrates some more subtle forms of IPV (page 2), and this escalates as she goes home for a weekend. During the second phase (page 3) Jack is picking up Blair from a night class, and she is late. Jack becomes enraged and shakes Blair, leading her to break up with him. Blair becomes angry that she allowed this to go on for so long and seeks revenge on Jack by sending him a half-naked picture of her and one of Jacks swim team friends (page 4) which result in Jack making threats, becoming intoxicated and being hospitalized. Phase four (page 5) shows Jack and Blair getting back together and both engaging in IPV activities towards each other. Page 6 includes the email Jack sends Alex.

Narrative 2:

Cassie has severe and recurrent depression with on-going suicidal ideations and an attempt at home over Thanksgiving break. Cassie is a likable student with weak supports from her family at home. Central questions of the case include her ability to remain on campus, if campus counseling is appropriate and how and when to force a withdrawal.

The case unfolds over three stages. She comes to the attention of the BIT and counseling services (page 8). Cassie begins counseling and starts to think more about killing herself and shares this to the counselor and around campus with her art (page 9). There is a Suicide attempt off-campus which results in the team calling a case management meeting to discuss options (page 10).
