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. With the holidays so close, our training schedule has been rather limited, but we’ve still got a few items of note.
First up, due to demand, we’ve extended the application deadline for next year’s The Summer Institute: Preparing for a Military-Focused Career program. This five-day course is intended for psychology doctoral students who are interested in applying for a military internship in 2017 or 2018. It is designed to provide firsthand knowledge of military culture, showcase the work of military psychologists, and some of the evidence-based strategies used to treat Veterans and Service members. Click here for more details about the program. The new deadline for applications is now 13 January 2017.
Registration is ongoing for our first online training event of 2017. We’ll be holding a Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I) training on 18-19 January. Registration for the event is $30 and comes with 13.5 CEs.
We opened registration for a new event this week as well. The next session of the Couples Webinar Series, “Military and Veteran Couples: Evidence-Based Approaches to Treatment,” on 25 January, is now accepting participants. For more details or to register, visit the Couples Webinar Series page here. Registration for “An Intervention Model for Working with Military Couples Who Have Experienced Infidelity” on 28 February will also open soon. If you would like to be notified via email when registration begins, please complete the form here.
This week in the CDP blog, our Staff Perspective column was by Dr. Libby Parins, “Preparing for a Career in Military Psychology”. Dr. Parins details some of the different positions in which military psychologist serve, as well as several things to consider for those interested in such a career. 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 for this week. We hope everyone has a merry Christmas this weekend! Monday’s a holiday, but we’ll be back on Wednesday with a new Staff Perspective column.
