Practitioner Development


The below material is provided to further assist you with your professional self-development.  The videos are short training scenarios designed to continue practitioner development by providing information on positive and/or negative behaviors in a "what now" scenario and potential courses of action. The viewer is presented with a situation to consider and options on how to proceed.  These real life scenarios can also be used to generate conversations at the team level by using the associated facilitation guide to walk small groups through the situation to discuss possible remedies.  This material is not part of any formal course curriculum and no educational credit or completion certificates are provided.  To view this content you will be required to register in the DEOMI Learning Management System (LMS).  The LMS is located at  Select New Registration to complete the one time registration and you can view all supplemental training materials as well as formal eLearning courses. 

All of the videos listed below are located in the Supplemental Training area of the LMS.
