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. Before we say good-bye to 2016, we’ve got a few more things to talk about.
We spent the week down in Charleston, South Carolina, for our Regional Civilian One-Week Training in partnership with the Star Behavioral Health Providers (SBHP) program. We’d like to thank all our presenters as well as the participants who showed up and made this such a successful event. This is the last iteration for 2016, but we’re already hard at work putting together the schedule for next year. We’re finalizing details now, but the first session of 2017 will be in Las Vegas, NV this spring. If you would like to be notified via email about future instances, please complete the form here.
On Wednesday, we held December’s CDP Presents monthly webinar. The topic was “Use of Mobile Applications in Clinical Practice with Service Members and Veterans.” If you weren’t able to attend, we’ve got the recording of the event available for on-demand viewing here. Next month’s will be on 24 January from noon to 1:30 Eastern and entitled “Using Veteran Peers to Improve Access to Mental Health Services and Support Recovery.” As with most of our CDPP events, those who attend and complete a brief post-training survey/evaluation will be eligible for one free CE. Registration for this event will be opening soon.
Next Thursday and Friday, we’ll be presenting a training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Depression (CBT-D) in Second Life. Today is the final day to register for this training. It’ll be the last online event for 2016, so sign up now!
Speaking of online events, we’ve got a new Couples Webinar Series. It’s composed of the “Military and Veteran Couples: Evidence-Based Approaches to Treatment” webinar, 25 January, and “An Intervention Model for Working with Military Couples Who Have Experienced Infidelity” on 28 February. Registration for both of these events will 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. Deb Nofziger, “Group vs. Individual Treatment with Cognitive Processing Therapy”. Dr. Nofziger looked at a recent study that tries to answer the commonly asked question of “Which treatment modality is better?”. 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 now. Have a great weekend everyone and we hope to see you back here next week for a new edition of our By the Numbers column!
