Staff Perspective: Five Years of the CDP Blog

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then what are almost a thousand blogs worth?  I suppose that depends on the blog,...but consider the idea that a blog is intended to inform its target audience with timely information that is conversational, directly useful, and regularly updated.  Then ask yourself the worth of a blog for behavioral health providers that provided weekly research updates, statistics, and national expert opinions on issues related to the psychological well-being of Service members, Veterans and their families.  Hopefully you’d agree that it would be invaluable, especially if it was free!

CDP News: Apr. 14, 2017

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 at the mid-point of April and spring doesn’t look like it’s going to slow down anytime soon.

Staff Perspective: New EBP Video Section

We here at the Center for Deployment Psychology are excited to unveil the new Evidence-Based Psychotherapies video section on our website. As part of our multi-day EBP training events, we use many videos to demonstrate a variety of techniques. One of the most common request we receive is participants wanting the opportunity to watch these videos again afterwards to help reinforce the concepts. Now those interested can watch (and re-watch) all these video demonstrations whenever they want.
