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. It's June and the official start of summer is just around the corner.
This was a shorter week, due to the Memorial Day holiday. We still held a couple of face-to-face events as part of our Speakers Bureau. On Wednesday and Thursday, our trainers were in Macon, GA to present a training on Prolonged Exposure. Then on Thursday and Friday, we visited to Augusta, ME to present a CBT-I training for the Maine National Guard.

Our next online EBP event will be Cognitive Processing Therapy via Second Life on 18-19 June. Registration is $45 and comes with 13.5 CEs. 12 June is the deadline to register for this event. Then on 27 June, we'll be holding our next CDP Presents webinar "Comparing and Contrasting Conceptualization and Treatment of PTSD from the Perspectives of Social Cognitive and Emotional Processing Theories." webinar will illustrate key concepts from Social Cognitive (Cognitive Processing Therapy) and Emotional Processing (Prolonged Exposure Therapy) theories used in conceptualizing PTSD. Participants who attend and complete a post-training survey/evaluation will be eligible for one free CE. All our currently scheduled events can be found on our upcoming training calendar. If you would like to be notified by email of upcoming online events, you can also sign up by completing the form here.
Over on the CDP blog, this week’s Staff Perspective was “Returning From Deployment” by Libby Parins. In it, she and Eddie Black have a conversation about his experiences, emotions, and challenges upon returning from deployment. It's an interesting first-hand look at the thoughts of a returning Service member. As always, don’t forget to check out the weekly Research Update. As usual, it’s a great summary of the latest news, journal articles, and useful links from around the web.
That’s it for this time around.
