And it is the first step to become a Certified PCOMS Trainer.

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.

Homework assignments and personal feedback will enhance the participants comprehension and take-home knowledge. Get everything you need to train and implement PCOMS at your organization, including all the training materials that Dr. Barry Duncan uses.

What 2020’s participants said

The Train the Trainers conference was an insightful journey into all the facets of PCOMS.  The training gave life to the use of the PCOMS as a tool to direct our work and evaluate how effective we are as helpers. It challenged me in both my own use of PCOMS, and equipping others to use.

Steven I Palin, M.A., NCC, LPC, LPCS, Clinic Director, York Technical College

I really enjoyed the entire PCOMS training. Just fascinating stuff. One of the best conferences I have been to, bar none.

Michael Sweeney, MD,  Chief Medical Officer, Southwest Behavioral & Health Services

The TOT conference was an incredible experience. Barry has the ability to teach the necessary skills and the concepts to understand the importance and impact of PCOMS in the clinical field. His vast knowledge and extensive experience using PCOMS and transferring skills makes the learning process organic. The way the training is structured with a combination of foundational knowledge to learn the rationales for PCOMS, practice exercises to develop the skills and the delivery of the information to prepare us to teach others was an excellent approach to training. I feel ready and motivated to train others the impact and ability to enhance our work that PCOMS provides. 

Ana Martinez-Risco, MSc, CCC,  Director of Clinical Services, CFS Saskatoon

I loved it and learned a lot to bring back to our staff.  It integrates well with the services that we provide.
