The CDP's weekly research update contains the latest news, journal articles and useful links from around the web. Some of this week's topics include:
• A prospective study of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and disease activity outcomes in U.S. veterans with Rheumatoid Arthritis.
• Effectiveness of a manualized imagery rehearsal therapy for patients suffering from nightmare disorders with and without a comorbidity of depression or PTSD.
The percentage of U.S. service members infected with HIV who receive a mental health diagnosis six or more months after the infection was first detected, according to an article (PDF) in the May 2012 issue of the Armed Forces Health Surveillance Center's Medical Surveillance Monthly Report.
We're wrapping up the month of June on a high note here at the CDP. We've been out and about presenting this week. Today Dr. Diana Sermanian is presenting the keynote address on "Military Culture, an overview of CBT - Insomnia and an overview of Imagery Rescripting Therapy" at the NASW - NYS Veterans Mental Health Initiative.
