Tabletop Exercises for Threat Assessment Teams

One of the best tools in crisis-response planning is scenario-based training – using hypothetical situations to inform real-world responses.

You and your team will encounter legal, ethical, and other issues that complicate the urgent need to respond in a crisis on your campus.

This tool helps you build a situation-based crisis management training program.

It's led by Brian Van Brunt, Ed.D., director of the Counseling and Testing Center at Western Kentucky University and past president of the American College Counseling Association. Brian is also a member of his campus’s behavioral intervention team, an EMT, and a crisis counselor

The result is an exceptionally rich training experience you’ll want to share with your campus crisis team.
