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 heading into April and we’ve got lots of things to talk about!
All next week, we’ll be just outside of Philadelphia, in King of Prussia, PA for our next Regional Civilian One-Week Training. While advanced registration has closed, there are still spots left and we will be doing limited onsite registration. For more information about onsite sign-ups, please contact Chris Myers at firstname.lastname@example.org. Registration is $95 and includes up to 32.5 continuing education credits. It’s shaping up to be a great event and we look forward to seeing everyone in person next week! However, if you can’t make it to next week’s event, we’ve still got a few more iterations of this training coming up in 2017. If you would like to be notified via email when registration for future sessions begins, just complete the form here.
We’ve also got a couple of Speakers Bureau events next week that will bring us to Kansas City, MO and just up the road to Rockville, MD. These are always quite interesting opportunities to get out in the community and meet providers we might not encounter in our normal training cycle. If you’d like to learn more about bringing a CDP speaker to your organization’s next event, head over to the Speakers Bureau page. We’ve got a wide variety of topics and presentations available, so check it out!
We’ll also be on the road visiting Terre Haute, IN on, Tuesday and Wednesday, and Macon, GA, on Wednesday and Thursday, as part of the Star Behavioral Health Providers program. This multi-state initiative seeks to train clinical professionals on the unique needs of the military community. If you’d like to learn more about the SBHP program or find out if it’s available in your state, click here.
We reached capacity for our upcoming online Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) training on 21-22 April. It you weren’t able to register, we’ve got other events soon. On 18 April, we’ll be holding our next CDP Presents, “Building Military Family Resilience”. Also, registration will begin next week for the online Cognitive Processing Therapy for Depression (CBT-D) training on 17-18 May will begin next week. If you’d like to be notified via email when registration for this and future online training events begins, please complete the form here.
Over in the CDP blog this week, we had a couple of great entries. First, Erin Ottenwess, a licensed clinical social worker, discussed her experiences with the challenges that face many military wives and husbands, in her entry “Career Path of a Military Spouse” Next up, Andy Santanello looked at what clinicians can say to clients who perceive that discussing military experiences is akin to “leaking” classified information in his entry “Does What Happens in Vegas Have to Stay in Vegas? Assisting Clients with Decision About Disclosure”. 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’ll see you on Monday as we start April off with a new entry in the “By the Numbers” column!
