Building on the three editions of Heroic Clients, Heroic Agencies: Partners for Change and almost twenty years of teaching and implementing PCOMS, Drs. Duncan and Sparks break down PCOMS into 10 learning modules addressing the 10 skills of PCOMS as well as individual chapters on couples, families, groups, case management, and child protection services. The Manual also provides modules on the four steps of PCOMS supervision as well as the secrets of implementation. Other features include fast access to summaries of the psychometrics of the PCOMS measures, the rationales for PCOMS, and all the handouts that aid in implementation in one convenient place. Written in an accessible workbook style (without research) for service and treatment providers of all stripes and flavors, The Manual is integrated with Better Outcomes Now and the PCOMS eLearning compendium of webinars and client videos, providing a full curriculum for orientation of new employees and ongoing PCOMS training.
