PCM Client Feedback & Testimonials

Other Feedback Selected:Staff Reaction to PCM

"We are an independently owned facility that provides behavioral programming for adults and children with challenging behaviors. When we started the program 4 years ago we looked for a method of data collection that would be cost effective, would give us options in the data presentation, and would decrease the amount of time we had to spend in data analysis or data entry. Several systems did not meet our three points of criterion; cost effective, user friendly and allow us different options in the data presentation. When we reviewed the CARES system, it fulfilled all three requirements. Since we have started using the system we have been extremely pleased with the service and the program. Whenever we have issues or questions they have been readily available and have always returned our calls within 24 hours. They have made adjustments to the program based on our feedback and we have yet to present them with a request that they could not accommodate or present us with a viable alternative. Based on the level of service and competence we would strongly recommend PCMA software solutions to any behavioral facility."

"Staff injuries are WAY down since we adopted PCM. Our staff turnover is WAY down as well. I believe the practical testing strategies used in the PCM classes work well."

"I just wanted to tell you how much the staff enjoyed taking (the BehaviorTools) course where I work. We have instructed 4 classes so far, and our staff has approached us to tell us that they learned a lot. When I first saw your class advertised, I was hoping to find a training tool that would really help direct care staff to deal more effectively with challenges they face each day at work. Your approach to teaching about coercion and alternative strategies was clear and respectfully presented to your audience in the DVD. The three basic tools were also presented very clearly and staff enjoyed the role play scenarios. We added some of our own role plays that were based on the clients we serve at our agency. Thanks again for taking the time and putting forth the effort to create such a wonderful teaching tool."

"I have had very positive experiences using PCM. The number of physical restraints have decreased while staff interactions have been more skillful and positive."

"The Guiding Principles really explain it all (Respect, Dignity, Choice, Least Restrictive Alternative, and Feedback). I truly promote them when teaching to other participants. It has helped me to show people positive ways to intervene and deal with crisis behaviors. Staff's feedback from the experience of using Professional Crisis Management is that it is valuable and positive."
