Welcome to this week’s edition of CDP News! We like to use this space to review recent happenings in and around the Center for Deployment Psychology, while also looking ahead to upcoming events. This week was our annual All-Staff meeting at the CDP headquarters, where we brought in all of our external staff to work on projects and internal training. We’ve got plenty of great training events coming up and news to talk about however!
Deployment Psychology Blog
The CDP's weekly research update contains the latest news, journal articles and useful links from around the web. Some of this week's topics include:
● PTSD Research Quarterly -- Biomarkers for Treatment and Diagnosis
● Sleep in the U.S. Military: Promoting Healthy Sleep Among U.S. Servicemembers (RAND)
In today’s blog, I’d like to take a few moments to talk about another great feature on DeploymentPsych.org, the self-paced online course Military Culture: Core Competencies for Healthcare Professionals.

This course has recently undergone some great improvements that will hopefully make it even more user-friendly and convenient for learners.

Next week we’re going to slow down on the training events, as we’ll be holding our yearly All-Staff meeting at CDP HQ. We’ve got plenty more in the pipeline after that though!
