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. The Fourth of July holiday slowed things down this week, but there are still plenty of events coming up this summer.
Registration began this week for August’s suicide prevention training. It will be held on 22-23 August. We’re trying something a bit different with this event. We’ve adjusted the time to allow participants on the west coast to have an easier time attending. Instead of our normal start time, this event will begin at 11 a.m. Eastern and end at 7:30 p.m. each day. We’re always looking for ways to expand the reach of our training events, so let us know if there’s anything we can do! Registration is also ongoing for our Prolonged Exposure Therapy training will be held on 25-26 July. Registration for this two-day event is $45 and comes with 13.5 CE credits for a variety of disciplines. You can sign up to be notified when registration for this and any future online training events begins by completing the form here.
Speaking of upcoming online events, the next CDP Presents webinar will be held from noon to 1:30 Eastern on 27 July. We’re partnering with the Cohen Veterans network for this offering entitled “Moral Injury Recognition and Care.” This online event will be presented by William Nash, M.D. 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.
This week’s Staff Perspective was by Andy Santanello who introduced a great new resource on the CDP website, the CPT Session Notes. This series of brief videos is designed to provide “just-in-time” refreshers about the content of each session of the CPT protocol. The first release covers the first three phases, including “Pretreatment Assessment and Pretreatment Issues,” “Education Regarding PTSD, Thought, and Emotions,” and “Processing the Trauma”. Additional videos on the final three sessions are coming soon, so keep an eye out! (We’ve also got a set of Session Notes for Prolonged Exposure.) 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 time around. Have a great weekend out there, but don’t forget to come back and see us on Monday for a new entry in the “By the Numbers” column!
