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 looking like May is going to be another busy month with lots of great events going on.
This week our training staff was in Muncie, IN on behalf of the Star Behavioral Health Providers (SBHP) program. Next week SBHP will take our trainers to Columbus, OH and Ellenwood, GA to provide instruction on evidence-based therapies. For more information about this great program and to find out if it’s available in your home state, head over to the SBHP section of our site.
We also visited Bismark, ND as part of our Speakers Bureau program. If you’re interested in having CDP present for your organization’s next event or gathering, you can find out more on our Speakers Bureau page.
In addition to our face-to-face events, we’ve got some excellent online training opportunities coming up soon. Today is the final day to sign up for our next two-day EBP training in Second Life, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Depression (CBT-D) training on 17-18 May. If you can’t make it to that one, registration is also available for our online Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I) training on 14-15 June. While registration isn’t yet available, we’ve added the dates and topics for most of our two-day EBP training events for 2017 and into 2018. Hopefully, this will help allow interested participants to have plenty of advanced knowledge of our slate of training opportunities. 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 upcoming online events, our next CDP Presents webinar, “Working With LGBT Service Members” will be held from noon to 1:30 p.m on 23 May. 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’ve also begun registration for June’s event “Challenges to Evidence-Based Practice in Treating PTSD: Practical Solutions.” This round-table discussion will cover several common barriers that providers may encounter, both client- and therapist-driven. The panel will provide some practical solutions to overcome these issues.
This week in the CDP Blog, Dr. Lisa French provided a very thought-provoking entry, “Recommending Military Service to Others.” In it, she used the results from the 2016 Blue Stars Family Military Family Lifestyle Survey Comprehensive Report to examine the difference in Service members and Veterans who would recommend military service to others compared to their own children. She also draws upon her own experience as a Veteran and mother to offer some interesting insight into the matter. 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 week. We’ll see everyone on Monday for a new entry in our “By the Numbers” column.
