Tip of the Week
Keeping Your BIT Organized
by Peggy S. Scott, Ed.D., LPC-S
Have you ever left a BIT meeting and thought, “What did we just decide to do in this case and what am I responsible for?” My university addressed this issue with a quick fill-out-as-you-go form that helps keep us on track and organized. Sure, we have an agenda, but this form has really prevented “chasing rabbits” and coming up with an intervention before a level of risk has even been assessed.
