CDP News: Jan. 6, 2017

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. Hopefully, everyone enjoyed the holidays and is ready for 2017. It’s a new year and we’re looking forward to kicking things off right this month.

First off, we just opened up registration for a couple of new events. On 24 January, we’ll be holding our monthly webinar, CDP Presents. This time around we’ll be teaming up with Army One Source to offer “Using Veteran Peers to Improve Access to Mental Health Services and Support Recovery.” The event will be held via Adobe Connect from noon to 1:30 p.m. Eastern. 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.  We’ve also just started sign-ups for our next online Prolonged Exposure Therapy (PE) training, which will be held 22-23 February via Second Life. As far as existing registrations go, there are just a few more days to register for the upcoming Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I) training on 18-19 January. If you’d like to take part, be sure and sign up before Wednesday!

We’re also getting close to the registration deadline for this year’s The Summer Institute: Preparing for a Military-Focused Career program. All applications must be in by next Friday to be considered. 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.

Registration will be opening soon for the latest iteration in our Couples Webinar Series. The topic, on 28 February, will be “An Intervention Model for Working with Military Couples Who Have Experienced Infidelity.” If you complete the form here, we’ll send you an email once sign-ups begin for this and future Couples Webinars.

This week in the CDP blog, our Staff Perspective column, “New Year, New Training Opportunities,” looked ahead to some of the great training opportunities we’ve got coming up in 2017. CDP is always looking at new ways to fulfil our mission of providing high-quality, evidence-based training to behavioral health providers. 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 great weekend. We’ll be back on Monday with the first “By the Numbers” column of the year!
