Professional Development Institute

OVC developed the Professional Development Institute (PDI) in response to field practitioners who expressed interest in training on management issues in victim services. The institute, which was first presented at the 1999 NOVA conference, is a 16.5-hour training course presented in five modules by experts in human resource and victim services management. The five modules include theoretical concepts and practical guidelines for leadership, strategic planning, human resource development, and program evaluation. The intended audience includes program managers and supervisors who want to better manage services, resources, and staff.
