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. It’s starting to feel like summer out here, but the heat isn’t slowing us down any!
The CDP training staff were hard at work this week. We visited Columbus, OH and Ellenwood, GA to provide instruction on evidence-based therapies as part of the Star Behavioral Health Providers program (SBHP). Next week we’re headed to Lantham, NY our next event. For more information about this great program and to find out if it’s available in your home state, head over to the SBHP section of our site.
On Wednesday and Thursday, we held our latest online event, a Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Depression (CBT-D) training. These online events allow us to extend our training reach and include participants from across the country, and even the world. Our next multi-day EBP training will be a Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I) training on 14-15 June. We’ve also added the dates for the next year of online events. Head over to our upcoming training calendar and see what’s coming up. If you’d like to be notified via email when registration begins for these future online training events please complete the form here.
While you’re looking at upcoming online events, don’t forget to sign up for our next CDP Presents webinar, “Working With LGBT Service Members” will be held from noon to 1:30 p.m on 23 May. June’s event “Challenges to Evidence-Based Practice in Treating PTSD: Practical Solutions” is also available for registration as well. As with most of our CDP Presents events, everyone who registers, attends, and completes a brief post-training survey/evaluation will be eligible to receive one free CE.
This week in the CDP Blog, we’re trying something new. Instead of our standard Staff Perspective column, this week we’ve got a video discussion between CDP staffers Carin Lefkowitz and Andy Santanello. They discuss a recent study which looks at a new way to consider treatment dropout. It’s a great discussion and we’re looking forward to doing more entries like this. Take a look and let us know what you think! 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.
With that, we’ll sign off for another week. Have a great weekend and don’t forget to come back next week for another entry in our “By the Numbers” column.
