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’re almost done with March and everyone’s looking forward to spring!
It was a busy week, as we had multiple events going on. On Tuesday, we held our latest CDP Presents webinar, entitled “Ethical Considerations for Working with Military Members and Veterans”. If you missed it, you can watch a recording of the event here. While you’re at it, make sure and sign up for our next webinar on building family resilience, which will be held at noon Eastern on 18 April. 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.
On Wednesday and Thursday, we held a two-day EBP training in Second Life on suicide prevention. Our next online EBP training will be on Cognitive Processing Therapy on 21-22 April. Registration is currently ongoing, but slots are filling quickly. If you’re interested in attending this training, we suggest signing up soon, as it looks like it will sell out. Signups for the online Cognitive Processing Therapy for Depression on 17-18 May will begin soon. If you’d like to be notified via email when registration for this and future online training events begins, please complete the form here.
Monday is the final day to register for our next Regional Civilian One-Week Training. It will be held 3-7 April in the Philadelphia-metro area. Registration for the event is $95 and comes with up to 32.5 continuing education credits. There are sessions on numerous topics including sleep disorders in the military, TBI, substance abuse, military culture, the deployment cycle, a two-day training on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Depression, and much more. If you’d like additional information on the course content or to register, head over to the event page. If you would like to be notified via email when registration for future sessions begins, just complete the form here.
We were happy to welcome a guest blogger this week. Corie Weathers, a licensed professional counselor, wrote a great entry “Healers of Soul Injury – A Clinician’s Call to Serving Military Families.” This entry looks at how clinicians can better connect with and help Service members, Veterans, and their families. There are several informative suggestions throughout it. Then Dr. Carin Lefkowitz discussed her experience attending a lecture by LTC Dave Grossman, known for his books “On Killing” and “On Combat”. It’s quite interesting to see the differences and, more importantly, the similarities in LTC Grossman’s approach. 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 this time around. Thanks for joining us and we hope to see everyone back here on Monday for a brand-new “By the Numbers” entry.
