The Center for Deployment Psychology (CDP) is offering a two-day evidence-based workshop for Tri-Service military/DoD/GS behavioral health providers on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Depression online via Zoom, 4-5 May 2022, 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Eastern. Attendance at both days is mandatory. The workshop is free.
This course will be held online via Zoom. Also, a functioning microphone is MANDATORY to attend, in order to participate in the role-play sessions. Headphones are also HIGHLY recommended to provide the optimal experience.
This intensive two-day workshop provides training in the fundamentals of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Depression for behavioral health providers working with Service members. The workshop will begin with a discussion of depression in the military, followed by a summary of the theory underlying cognitive behavioral therapy. Participants will then learn how to conceptualize depressed patients according to this model, plan treatment, and utilize both cognitive and behavioral strategies. Participants will have the opportunity to watch video examples and practice intervention strategies through their own role plays. Participants must attend both days.
This course will be presented via Zoom teleconferencing software. Participants will not have to install any additional programs on their computer to take part. However, a web browser is necessary. (Mac users are recommended to use the Chrome or Firefox browsers to minimize tech issues). Participants can test their computer's capabilities by clicking here (or visiting http://zoom.us/test).
We recommend all participants test their ability to load Zoom in advance of the event to ensure there are no technical difficulties. All participants must log in via an individual connection, rather than as a group using one machine. A headset/headphones are recommended. A functioning microphone is also MANDATORY to attend this training, to allow for participation in role-play sessions.
