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. Things have slowed down a bit, now that we’re deep into summer, but there’s still events on the horizon!
This Wednesday is the final day to sign up for the next online Prolonged Exposure Therapy training on 25-26 July. Registration for this two-day event is $45 and comes with 13.5 CE credits for a variety of disciplines. Signups are also ongoing for August’s suicide prevention training on 22-23 August. This event may be of special interest to those located on the west coast (or even Mountain Time Zone). Unlike our usual schedule for these events, this one will begin at 11 a.m. Eastern and end at 7:30 p.m. each day. This is to help allow participants on the west coast to have an easier time attending. We’ll have a few more events like this coming up over the next year or so. You can see all of our currently scheduled events on our training calendar here. If you would like to be notified when registration begins for any upcoming online event, you can sign up by completing the form here.
Also coming up this month, the next CDP Presents webinar will be held from noon to 1:30 Eastern on 27 July. This month’s event is titled “Moral Injury Recognition and Care.” The webinar will be led by William Nash, M.D. We’re excited to partner with the Cohen Veterans network for this one. As with most of our CDP Presents events, everyone who registers, attends, and successfully completes a brief post-training survey/evaluation will be eligible to receive one free CE. We’ve also added the recordings of both of June’s CDPP webinars, "Challenges to EBP Implementation" and "Working with LGBT Service Members" to our archive for on-demand viewing. If you missed them, definitely take some time to watch them.
Last week we talked about the new CPT Session Notes videos that we’ve created to help review the major points and goals of various sessions/phases in CPT. We’re happy to announce that we’ve added the final three phases to the page, which now has videos for all 12 sessions of CPT. Take a look and let us know what you think!
This week’s Staff Perspective was by Jennifer Phillips and was entitled “But, Does It Work? Resources for Designing, Implementing, and Interpreting Program Evaluation for Behavioral Health Programs.” This is the second part of her recent series on program evaluation and how CDP, and you, can use these resources to improve or initiate program evaluation. Also, don’t forget to check out this week’s Research Update. It’s packed with all the latest news, journal articles and useful links from around the Web.
That’s all we’ve got for this week’s post. Have a great weekend, stay cool out there, and come back on Monday for a new entry in the “By the Numbers” column!
