25-minute staff training video produced by the Veterans Health Administration to demonstrate how a set of caregiving skills can be implemented in practice.  A set of five, 5-minute video clips show the conventional way of approaching care that often provokes or worsens challenging behaviors, and then shows an alternative approach.  The alternative approaches include the following skills:

1. Positive Physical Approach during morning care
2. Hand-Under-Hand Cueing during grooming activities
3. Dealing with distress with an individual
4. Dealing with distress in a group setting
