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 November already and it's starting to feel like winter out there.
Tuesday is the final day to sign up for our next EBP training, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I) presented 14-15 November in Second Life. You can also register now for our December EBP, which will be Prolonged Exposure Training via Second Life on 13-14 December. Registration for each of these events is $45 and comes with 13.5 CE credits. All our currently scheduled events can be found on our upcoming training calendar. If you would like to be notified when registration begins for any upcoming online event, you can sign up by completing the form here.
Speaking of upcoming online events, 15 November will also feature our next CDP Presents webinar, “Chronic Pain and Opioid (Ab)Use.” It will review the intersection of chronic pain and opioid use and misuse in the military. It will also cover detail evidence-based treatment for both conditions. As with most of our CDP Presents webinars, participants who register, attend and successfully complete a post-training survey/knowledge evaluation will be eligible to receive one free CE. Then in December our CDPP will be lead by our Executive Director Dr. Dave Riggs on 5 December and entitled “Assessment and Management of Anger in Service Members and Veterans.” Registration for that one will be coming soon, so keep an eye on the training calendar.
This week's Staff Perspective looked at a recent article on the increased risk of suicide faced by female Vets. The article discusses recent data from the VA showing that female Veterans have a 250% higher risk of suicide than the normal population. 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 it for this week. Next Friday is Veteran's Day, so there's be no CDP News. We encourage everyone to take the time to observe and reflect upon the holiday. If you want to stay current with all the latest CDP news, follow the CDP on the social media channel of your choice, Facebook, Twitter, Google+ or LinkedIn. See you back here on Monday for a new “By the Numbers” column.
