Establishing a Violence Risk Assessment Workshop

11:00am-3:00pm ET

This workshop aims to assist practitioners in implementing an evidence-based process that reduces bias, mitigates legal risk exposure, avoids disability discrimination, and ensures consistency in determining (1) if a VRA is necessary, (2) who should conduct the VRA, and (3) what to do after receiving the VRA results report.

Participants will learn how to vet who conducts a VRA, how the VRA varies from other types of assessments, and how to work collaboratively with behavioral intervention, CARE, and threat assessment teams to ensure an efficient and thorough process. Click here to learn more.

Addressing Intimate Partner Violence Seminar


The seminar covers the impact and spectrum of IPV behaviors, barriers to reporting, and responsive potential for addressing IPV and supporting affected parties. Additionally, the seminar will address situations where the Title IX coordinator believes there is a need to move forward with the grievance process, even if the affected party does not agree, and how to do so with an effective safety plan in place.

Faculty members will present nuanced analytical challenges, such as evaluating self-defense arguments, counter-complaints, autonomic self-defense, questions of intent, and how best to define violence. Lastly, participants will explore the intersection of Title IX and behavioral intervention team (BIT) work regarding risk assessment and response to IPV allegations. Click here to learn more.

Responding to Stalking Seminar

2:00pm-4:00pm ET

This seminar provides participants with an in-depth look at the complex issue of stalking in the education environment, from prevention to intervention to response, including how it affects students and employees.

ATIXA’s expert faculty members review applicable definitions and response requirements under the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) and Title IX, as well as best practices when working with sophisticated technology/cyber manifestations of invasive behavior. They review how to manage the overbroad federal stalking definition in real-world situations and how this overbreadth can impact our students on the spectrum.

Learn how to identify stalking behaviors, the impact of these behaviors, and your options for response and support for the affected party. Participants will also explore the intersection of Title IX and the work of Behavioral Intervention Teams (BIT) as it relates to risk assessment and response to stalking allegations.

NABITA’s Structured Interview for Violence Risk Assessment (SIVRA-35)

10:00am-5:00pm ET Both Days

NABITA’s Structured Interview for Violence Risk Assessment (SIVRA-35) is a 35-item inventory that is used to assist behavioral intervention team members and clinical staff in conducting a more thorough and research-based violence risk assessment. The SIVRA-35 is designed to assess the risk and protective factors related to an individual’s willingness to engage in violence.

This two-day course will provide an in-depth teaching on how to conduct an effective interview and gather information to score an individual using the SIVRA-35. This will include strategies for increasing likelihood of truthfulness, a discussion on how to phrase questions to probe for specific risk and protective factors, and the opportunity to watch demonstration videos and practice scoring them.
