With the growth of threats and violence in higher education settings, college campuses are increasingly expected to have systems in place to identify potentially aggressive individuals and intervene to ensure the safety of the campus population. This book will be useful for student affairs professionals as well as college counselors, psychologists, social workers interested in the practical management of aggression and violence on a college campus. It will also be a valuable resource for those involved in creating and running behavioral intervention teams and threat/risk assessment teams. Ten case studies from both the community and residential college settings provide a comprehensive overview of campus violence and how to intervene to prevent it. Pertinent background information is discussed as an introduction to these narratives, such as the fundamentals of aggression and violence on campuses; how these behaviors can impact students, faculty, and staff; and what can be learned from past campus violence. Along with discussion questions and a review of ways to approach each situation, experts in higher education, forensic risk assessment, law enforcement, and legal issues weigh in on each case study. Their perspectives offer a context and broad base of opinions and ideas on how each case could be handled. Additional examples for further training of the college counselor are given through a detailed look at almost 100 incidents of violence, including thwarted attacks, rampage shootings, and hostage situations.

As college and university leaders, members of their campus communities, and the general public increasingly recognize the importance of early identification and intervention when it comes toaddressing behavior of concern on campus to prevent an escalation towards violence, BITs are challenged to more effectively encourage reporting of such behavior, objectively assess threat and violence risk, and implement measures to ensure the safety of their campus populationswhile also providing support to and balancing the rights of students in crisis.NaBITA, the National Behavioral Intervention Threat Association, has long published best practices, tips, and expert insights for their members.

In recognition of that, NaBITA is committed to updating this resource regularly as new promising practices emerge, legislation and case law impacts how BITs must operate, and as new challenges surfac e and are overcome.

Men have a responsibility to prevent rape. Research on the causes of campus rape and sexual assault indicate that it is the experience of masculinity itself - how men think of themselves as men - that creates the psychological and cultural environment that leads us to rape; and that this environment is perpetuated in men's relationships with and expectations of each other. To be effective, rape prevention work with men must therefore focus on men's experience. This pioneering volume of New Directions for Student Services provides resources for professionals in higher education who want to work with men to reduce the incidence of sexual assault and rape on campus. Extensive guidelines are provided for the development and implementation of a model rape prevention program for men, including student perspectives on facilitating such a program. Student personnel administrators interested in working with men to prevent rape and sexual assault will benefit from the theory, research, treatment models, innovative programming, student perspectives, and resources reviewed in this volume.
