The Center for Deployment Psychology (CDP) is offering a four-hour workshop on Military-Connected Couples: An Intervention Model for Treating Infidelity and Intimate Partner Violence: An Overview of Assessment and Response with Military-Connected Clients. The workshop will be held online via Zoom, 15 August 2023, 10 a.m. to 2:15 p.m. Eastern. Space in this event is limited and registration will close when capacity is reached, even if this is before the final registration deadline. Registration for the course is $20.
This training is a combination of two modules from our Couples Webinar Series. The first half provides active duty and civilian mental health providers with an overview of Dr. Douglas Snyders' three-stage model for treating infidelity. It begins by defining behaviors that constitute an affair and then explores issues which may be specific to military couples. Next, the three-stage model is introduced along with tasks to be accomplished during therapy and treatment goals for each stage.
The second half of the training provides an overview of Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) with military-connected clients. First we will examine data regarding the prevalence of IPV. A review of the literature on the intersection of IPV and military culture will also be presented, along with key assessment elements, important questions to ask, and screening tools that can be used. Finally, we will review programs and resources available to prevent and respond to IPV with this population.
