Last Thursday and Friday, the Center for Deployment Psychology held an online training in Prolonged Exposure Therapy via Second Life. The CDP’s virtual education center played host to a group of providers from around the country as they were instructed in the methods of PE through slides, videos and interactive role-playing elements with their fellow workshop participants.

Last week the Center for Deployment Psychology hosted the first ever (that we’re aware of) online training in Prolonged Exposure Therapy for continuing education credits. We’re very proud of our team of presenters and support staff that helped pull this off. Even more importantly, all of the participants in this training seemed to enjoy and get quite a bit out of it, judging from the post-training surveys we’ve already received.
This time around we'd like to do something a little different and take a moment to point our users to the excellent piece in the Washington Post, "A Legacy of Pain and Pride" written by Rajiv Chandrasekaran.
As we enter the final week of March, we here at the Center for Deployment Psychology wanted to take a moment to remind everyone again that March is Brain Injury Awareness Month. This is particularly relevant, as Mild Traumatic Brain Injury (mTBI) has been labeled the “signature injury” of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. This has driven the identification and treatment of mTBIs to the forefront of concerns in military healthcare.
