Managing Psychotic, Manic & Delusional Students:

How To Reduce Legal Risk& Increase Student Safety

Thursday, December 13 ~ 3:00-4:30pm EDT

The registration fee includes institutional access to the recording for one year.


Much has been discussed lately regarding the legal and policy issues related to managing suicidal students on

campus following the federal OCR policy update. However, there is another important component to consider —

what to do about those students who present a risk to others based on their paranoid, delusional, or psychotic

symptoms. This webinar will discuss the issues and review how these students should be treated under the

recent federal OCR policy changes.

Jason Ebbeling, J. D. will discuss issues related to legal risk when managing these students through the

conduct, application, and re-entry process at both community and four-year residential colleges. Dr. Van Brunt

will review the common treatment and management struggles encountered when addressing students exhibiting

psychotic, delusional, and paranoid thoughts and behaviors.

Case examples and a lively, interactive discussion will provide audience members with some insight into how

these cases should be handled on campus, how students can be successfully referred to treatment, and some of

the limits related to conduct and medical leave sanctions under the new OCR policy.


Participants will:

• Develop an understanding of how these students become involved in the conduct process at a college or

university and common legal and policy pitfalls schools encounter when attempting to manage their


• Learn how to identify the common symptoms of bi-polar disorder, psychotic disorders, and schizophrenia

• Understand the components of the four-part direct threat test related to a forced medical leave separation

from the college or university when a ‘threat to others’ scenario develops

• Learn how to minimize the legal risk when working with these students

• Review the best ways to involve social supports, case management, and parents in the review of

students exhibiting these behaviors
