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. It’s June already and summer is in full swing at the CDP headquarters, but that’s not slowing us down any.
First up this week, we’re happy to announce that we have rescheduled the CDP Presents webinar that we were forced to cancel in May. We will now be holding the “Working With LGBT Service Members” on Thursday, 15 June. June is National PTSD Awareness month. To help highlight this, we’ll also be holding another CDP Presents webinar, “Challenges to Evidence-Based Practice in Treating PTSD: Practical Solutions” on 29 June from noon to 1:30 p.m. Registration is currently available for both of these great events. As with most of our CDP Presents events, everyone who registers, attends, and completes a brief post-training survey/evaluation will be eligible to receive one free CE. We’ll be doing plenty more to showcase National PTSD Awareness month as well, so definitely keep an eye on our website and social media accounts for more PTSD information and resources!
This week was a short week due to the Memorial Day holiday, so we didn’t have our usual training schedule this time around. However, we’ve got plenty coming up on the horizon. Our next multi-day EBP training will be a Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I) training on 14-15 June. Sign-ups will close next Friday for this event, so if you’re interested in attending sign up soon. Registration will open next week for our 25-26 July online Prolonged Exposure Therapy training. If you’d like to be notified via email when registration begins for these future online training events please complete the form here.
Speaking of online training, we’re changing things up again this week in the CDP Blog. This week’s Staff Perspective is a video featuring Kevin Holloway and Jenna Ermold and their Second Life avatars. In it, they talk about the history of CDP online training, advantages, challenges, and where we go from here. It’s a very interesting discussion. If you haven’t attended one of our Second Life events and are interested, it’s a great way to learn more about virtual provider training. You can also head over to the Second Life section of our website for additional information. 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. Have a weekend everyone. We hope the weather is as nice in your area as it is here! Make sure you come back and see us next week for a new entry in our “By the Numbers” column.
