Personalized Cognitive Counseling (PCC) is a single-session, one-on-one counseling intervention, delivered in the context of HIV testing by experienced HIV test counselors. It was developed for HIV-negative, gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men (MSM), who are repeat testers and already know HIV transmission facts.
The PCC Implementation Manual should be your first step in implementing PCC. Below are some links that provide quick access to common references and forms from the CDC Implementation Manual.
The goal for this phase is to address practical issues involved in preparing an agency for the implementation of PCC including a timeline, logic model, and descriptions of staffing qualifications and training. The resources in this section are in the Implementation Manual and available for download from the CDC Effective Interventions page for PCC.
