Personalized Cognitive Counseling Online Trainings

There is one online training available for Personalized Cognitive Counseling (PCC). The course is designed for managers responsible for overseeing the implementation of PCC. The course is organized into five modules and takes approximately 90 minutes to complete.

Personalized Cognitive Counseling (PCC) Overview: An overview for Managers

This online course is designed to give managers — including program administrators, supervisors, and health department monitors — an overview of PCC. PCC is an individual-level, single session counseling intervention designed to reduce condomless anal intercourse (CAI) among men who have sex with men (MSM) who are repeat testers for HIV. PCC targets MSM who previously tested for HIV, are HIV-negative, and had CAI since their last test with a male who was not their primary partner whose serostatus was positive or unknown. This course will inform both managers of agencies already implementing PCC and those who are interested in but not yet implementing PCC. This online course is organized into five modules and takes about 90 minutes to complete.

This course will:

  • Explain the history and development of PCC.
  • Summarize the six steps of PCC.
  • Explain key terms and concepts.
  • Describe the Checklist of Thoughts used by counselors.
  • Illustrate techniques used by counselors.
  • Explore your program readiness.
  • Assist you in developing an implementation plan, timeline, budget, and staffing plan.
