Free PC-CARE Training!

Thanks to an NCTSN and SAMHSA-funded training grant, we are able to offer free PC-CARE training to some U.S.-based providers for the next 5 years.  We will also be developing an online “PC-CARE Learning Center” which will include training resources and web courses for PC-CARE providers, trainers, caregivers, and paraprofessionals learning a variation of PC-CARE called “PC-CARE Toolbox.”

For training dates, please scroll further down the page. After completing the application, you will hear back from our team ASAP within 6-8 weeks.

Paid Training – Pay for training on your timeline

Please scroll down for training dates. Administrative, support, and paraprofessional staff may be interested in attending Phase 1 only. They will not be certified in PC-CARE, but will have the foundational knowledge of PC-CARE required to support families in practicing skills at home, or support other PC-CARE providers and program development in their agency.

PC-CARE Training – “Calls Only” option

Does your agency have a PC-CARE In-House Trainer?  We can support them while they train within your agency!  Sign up for this option to have your trainees join a UC Davis cohort for the weekly calls portion of Phase 2 training.  They’ll have access to UC Davis training materials including the full digital PC-CARE manual, sample case client videos, coding and coaching worksheets, and coding practice videos.  We will work them for 7 weeks of Phase 2, then your In-House trainer does the rest!
