Informed Consent

You are invited to complete a survey about behavioral intervention teams (BITs) conducted by the National Association for Behavioral Intervention and Threat Assessment (NABITA).

Purpose: The survey’s purpose is to gather descriptive and demographic data from higher education institutions regarding their use of behavioral intervention teams. NABITA membership is not a requirement to participate.

Procedures: Participants are asked to complete a 20 minute online survey.

Risks: The survey has no anticipated risks. Participation is voluntary. You may skip any question and may withdraw participation at any time. Refusal to participate in this survey will not affect future services from NABITA.

Benefits: The survey will gather data about the structure and characteristics of behavioral intervention teams. NABITA will use the results to inform its materials and resource creation, training for teams, and to track trends in the field over time. Results of the survey will be available to the public in summary format in a whitepaper. A separate member survey specific to the NABITA membership experience will be distributed later this year.

Confidentiality: Participant name, school/institution/organization name, as well as any other identifiable information will not be disclosed. Only researchers and staff conducting the survey will have access to survey responses.

Please have only one person take the survey from each school. The survey asks for specific and detailed information about the team's structure and process and it is therefore best if the person with the most amount of information about the team complete the survey.


If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the principal researcher, Makenzie Schiemann, Ph.D., Partner, TNG, and President, NABITA at makenzie.schiemann@tngconsulting.com.
