February 1-March 22, 2023 (24 hours of CEUs or CEs). The TOT is now totally online and offered in an 8-week course format. On 8 consecutive Wednesdays, from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM (Eastern US time), this intensive and totally online training experience gives you all you need to train others and implement the Partners for Change Outcome Management System (PCOMS). And it is the first step to become a Certified PCOMS Trainer. An in-depth coverage of the rationale for and research supporting PCOMS is provided as well as a thorough understanding of how to train others in the clinical nuances of using the Outcome Rating Scale (ORS) and Session Rating Scale (SRS), including use in teletherapy services. Other vital topics include data collection and management with and without Better Outcomes Now, the secrets of agency implementation, and a four-step supervisory process that ensures successful implementation while simultaneously improving outcomes.

What 2022’s participants said
The TOT class was informative, eye-opening, and equipped me with the knowledge to teach colleagues the importance of utilizing PCOMS with clients.
Joy Waterhouse, Catholic Community Services of Western Washington
The TOT helped build my knowledge and confidence in empowering client voices in my work with men in domestic abuse treatment. PCOMS fits well with current efforts to address diversity and social justice.
Even though I was already familiar with PCOMS, I found the training gave me a more in-depth knowledge about PCOMS and how it specifically benefits both consumer and helper.
Tim Stephens (Georgia)
There is something to be said about taking training from the creator of PCOMS. Going through this 8-week course has helped me understand the value of PCOMS and how to properly administer it to get the maximum benefit.
Natasha Painter, Outpatient Clinician Educator, New Vista (Kentucky)
PCOMS and its client-focused purpose resonate with me and inspired me like I haven’t experienced in a few years. Barry’s methods of teaching are very helpful… using a variety of methods…and learning in chunks over time allowing the information to settle in before learning more…and Barry’s optimism in general. I learned so much and I am genuinely disappointed the 8 weeks went by so quickly!
Jolivia Porter (Washington)
Director of Quality Management and Improvement, Columbia Wellness
I highly recommend the TOT to anyone who wants to integrate meaningful outcome measures into clinical practice. The skills and information learned in the course have transformed our agency and continues to inform how we practice today. We value this training and prioritize sending key staff annually.
Nikki Stanaitis, Chief Clinical Officer, New Vista (Kentucky)
The TOT was truly transformative. The systematic monitoring of the client’s experience of concrete change and outcome will benefit our consumer’s quality of life, our therapist’s ethos, our organization’s transparency and effectiveness, and thereby our field as a whole.
Thomas Bernhard, Dialog samtalesenter (Norway
This was excellent training, Barry was very kind and engaging. I appreciated the thoroughness of the PCOMS presentation and the pace at which the information was given.
Michelle Protich, Catholic Community Services of Western Washington
