Tip of the Week

Introducing the NaBITA Threat Assessment Tool App
NaBITA recently launched the first app version of the NaBITA Threat Assessment Tool. It is now available, free of charge, from the iTunes store (search for NaBITA).  The app is an automated version of NaBITA's resource document 21 Questions: A Supplemental Flowchart for the NaBITA Threat Assessment Tool, created to help Behavioral Intervention Teams use the NaBITA tool more consistently with each of the cases that come across the team's radar.
