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. We’ve got lots to talk about this week, so let’s get right to it.
Next Wednesday and Thursday, we’ll be holding our next online evidence-based psychotherapy (EBP) training, on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I). Today is the last day to sign up for this event, so if you’re interested in attending, now’s the time. Registration has just opened for the 25-26 July online Prolonged Exposure Therapy training. These PE events are popular and seats are limited, so we suggest signing up soon. If you’d like to be notified via email when registration begins for these future online training events please complete the form here.
Next Thursday we’ll be holding the rescheduled CDP Presents webinar on “Working With LGBT Service Members”. The webinar will run from noon to 1:30 p.m. Eastern. Our second webinar of the month, on 29 June, will be “Challenges to Evidence-Based Practice in Treating PTSD: Practical Solutions”. This panel presentation will examine some of the common hurdles that prevent implementation of EBPs and provide a few practical solutions for these issues. 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.
This week’s Staff Perspective focuses on the fact that June is National PTSD Awareness month. Education about PTSD has come a long way, but there’s still lots of work to do in that arena. The blog entry provides a quick rundown of some of the PTSD resources available on our website, as well as a few others from various organizations. 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.
If you’re not already, make sure you follow the CDP on social media as well. Visit our Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn pages for more info! That’s a wrap for this week. We hope everyone has a great weekend. We’ll see you right back here on Monday for a new entry in our “By the Numbers” column.
