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 plenty of events to talk about this week, so let’s get to it!
All next week, we’ll be presenting the first Regional Civilian One-Week Training event of 2017, in the Las Vegas-metro area. We’re hard at work getting everything ready for this event. We look forward to seeing everyone out there! If you can’t make it to this one, registration just opened for our Mid-Atlantic Regional Civilian One-Week Training as well. It will be held next month, 3-7 April, in the Philadelphia-metro area. Registration for the event is $95 and comes with up to 32.5 continuing education credits. If you’d like additional information on the course content or to register, head over to the event page. In addition, we’ve got several other iterations of this course coming up in 2017. If you would like to be notified via email when registration for these future events begins, just complete the form here.
There are still a few days left to sign up for our next two-day online EBP event, a suicide prevention training via Second Life. It will be held from 9 a.m. to 5:30 Eastern on 22-23 March. Also on 22 March, we’ll be holding our next CDP Presents webinar, entitled “Ethical Considerations for Working with Military Members and Veterans”. We’ve also opened registration for April’s CDP Presents, as well, “Building Military Family Resilience.” As with most of our CDP Presents events, those who register, attend, and complete a short post-training survey/evaluation will receive one free CE. Finally, we will also be holding an online training in Cognitive Processing Therapy on 21-22 April. Due to requests, we’re trying something a little different with this one. It will be held on a Friday and Saturday to help those who aren’t able to take two weekdays off to participate in a training. If it’s successful, we’ll look at doing more of these types of events. Let us know if that’s something you’d like to see!
In the CDP Blog this week, we look at overthinking. Overthinking is something most of us are guilty of, sometimes even on a daily basis. Laura Copland talks about this problem and provides a few suggestions about how to overcome it in her entry “Overthinking: We’re All Mad Here”. 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 it for this time around. We hope everyone has a good weekend. Don’t forget to set your clocks ahead on Sunday and check us out next week for a new “By the Numbers.”
