Assessment Tools

Brian has developed a number of assessment tools addressing the risk of harm to others or to self. These are available for purchase through NABITA and include:

  • NABITA Risk Rubric

  • Extremist Risk Intervention Scale (ERIS)

    • ERIS is a practical scoring tool useful for those on Behavioral Intervention Teams, law enforcement, and counter-terrorism teams to assess and intervene with extremist and terrorist violence. The tool looks at the interplay between risk and protective elements. Once these are assessed, the ERIS then looks at mobilization factors.
  • Incel Indoctrination Rubric (IIR)

    • Identify the incel philosophy and ensure an evidence-based approach to early identification and treatment.

  • Looking Glass

    • An easy to learn expert system designed to assess online and written content. Learn to analyze key elements of social media and written threats, along with practical experience in report writing.

  • Non-Clinical Assessment of Suicide (NAS)

    • An easy to use, clear, and evidenced-based expert system on how to consistently and objectively assess a student at-risk for suicide.

  • Structured Interview Violence Risk Assessment (SIVRA-35)

    • A 35-item inventory used to assist team members and clinical staff in conducting a more thorough and research-based violence risk assessment.
