August 24 | 1:00 – 2:30 PM ET

Staff in a variety of positions and departments are often asked to gather information to complete an assessment, develop interventions, rate risk, or decide an outcome. Dr. Brian Van Brunt and retired ATF Special Agent Nina Delgadillo will share with you the critical skills needed to effectively intake and interview students, faculty, and staff. Drawing from the fields of law enforcement, education, and psychology, they will discuss the importance of setting expectations and the scope of the intake or interview, as well as how to build rapport, establish commonalities and know the right questions to ask to overcome defensiveness, reluctance, and impression management.

This course is designed for case managers, counselors, human resources, Title IX coordinators, conduct officers, campus safety, and law enforcement professionals who are looking to improve their intake and interviewing skills as well as those who are new to the process of gathering information through in-person or on-line questioning. Learn how to ask questions in a trauma-informed manner that considers the individual’s culture and background, neurodiversity, physical limitations, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, and gender identity and expression. Additional issues of interviewer safety and room setup, the role of police and law enforcement are considered in a spectrum of cases.

Threat Assessment for Counselors, Police, BIT, Threat and CARE Teams

It’s not enough to do a violence risk assessment, you MUST show your work!

Learn D-Prep's online triage & violence risk assessment systems.


It’s not enough to do a good violence risk assessment, you MUST show your work!

  • Does your practice, department, school, or workplace have a cost effective, user-friendly, research-based system to document how you handle disruptive and dangerous behaviors and threats?

  • Do you have an approach to mitigate bias in decision making to ensure both the assessment of risk and the development of a risk mitigation plan are conducted in a culturally competent manner?

  • Are you able to have triage/gatekeeping system you can easily deploy on each case that comes to the BIT/CARE team?


Join Dr. Van Brunt, Jeff Solomon, and Nina Delgadillo as they share the how stop school and workplace shootings before they occur through violence risk and threat assessment. They will share how to do this through a two-step approach of first identifying risk through the Pathways triage expert system then assessing the risk with the DarkFox violence risk assessment tool. Pathways offers a user friendly, behaviorally based gateway screening for a variety of challenges related to mental illness, threats, and disruptive/dangerous behavior. The DarkFox violence risk assessment system is then used on higher concern threat to other scenarios. DarkFox offers police, counselors, BIT/CARE, and threat team members an easy-to-use system that develops a threat report covering the areas of vulnerability, negative thoughts, environmental stressors, suicidality, attack preparation, attack approach, and threat.

Moving Beyond
the Red Flags: 

Overcoming Obstacles
and Managing Threat

Already purchased the training?

A waving red flag

We know the red flags.
Now we need to work collaboratively to manage the threat

and to stop the progression from idea to violent action.

Join Jeff Solomon and Dr. Brian Van Brunt for this prerecorded event as they present a coordinated approach to moving beyond the red flags and toward management and intervention with a clear, research-based approach to the mitigation of threat and violence. The prevention of mass shootings is a complicated, multi-faceted problem that requires a team approach, not a siloed one.

Included with the program:

  • Access to a copy of the slides from the event, an audio recording of the event, and a video recording of the event with closed captioning

  • A supplemental guide that dives deeper into topics covered by the event
