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. February seems to be flying by, as we’re almost half-way through already.
Registration has just opened for the next session in CDP’s Couples Webinar Series, “An Intervention Model for Working with Military Couples Who Have Experienced Infidelity,”which will be held on 2 March, from noon to 2 p.m. These events have been very popular in the past, so if you’re interested in participating, we suggest signing up today, as capacity is limited for this training. If you would like to be informed via email about future events in the Couples Webinar Series, please complete the form here.
We’ve got several other opportunities for online training as well. On 21 February, from noon to 1:30 Eastern, we’ll hold our next CDP Presents webinar entitled “Chicken & Eggs: Treatment Order in Cases of Co-Morbid PTSD and Insomnia.” As with most of our CPP Presents events, those who attend and complete a short post-training survey/evaluation will be eligible for one free CE credit. Then on 22-23 February, we’ll be holding a Prolonged Exposure Therapy (PE) training via Second Life. There’s less than a week to go before sign-ups close for this event, so act fast. Next week, registration for our 22 March online suicide prevention training will open.
If you’re interested in face-to-face events, take a look at our upcoming Regional Civilian One-Week Training. It’s scheduled from 13-17 March in the Las Vegas-metro area. This is the first Regional Civilian One Week training of the year, but we’ve got a few more planned in the remainder of 2017, including visits to Philadelphia, PA, Dallas, TX, and other locales. You can opt-in for more information about these upcoming iterations by completing the form here.
Military culture was the theme this week on the CDP blog. Our Guest Perspective entry was by Dr. Deloria Wilson, who talked about the importance of making cross-cultural connections, in her entry “Learning to Bridge Cultures: A Few Lesson Learning from a Continuing Journey.” Then Dr. Jenna Ermold had a fascinating conversation with Dr. Christopher Keonig on military culture in primary care. If you’re interested in learning more, keep an eye on our website, as we’ll be unveiling a new course, featuring a roundtable on this topic soon! 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 edition of CDP News. We hope everyone has a great weekend and joins us right back here on Monday for a new entry in our “By the Numbers” column!
