CDP News: 11 October 2019

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. October is going by quick and keeping everyone here busy!

We just reached capacity on the upcoming Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Depression (CBT-D) training on 29-30 October. Unfortunately, this means all of our remaining two-day EBPs for the rest of the year are all full. Registration for next year's events, starting with the Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Suicide Prevention on 14-15 January 2020 will begin soon. We will be continuing to add more 2020 events to our upcoming training calendar on our site. So keep your eyes peeled on the CDP training calendar and/or Facebook/Twitter feeds. You can also keep up with the newest CDP events by signing up for our monthly email digest by completing this form.

Though our two-day EBP events are full, registration is still available for our monthly, free CDP Presents webinars. We have one coming up on Wednesday entitled "Exploring the Relationship Between Sleep and Substance Use Disorders." From noon to 1:30 p.m. EST, this webinar will explore the bidirectional relationship between sleep and substance use disorders clinicians may encounter in their practice. We've also begun sign-ups for the 6 November session, "PTSD, Resilience and Post-traumatic Growth in Traumatized Military Service Members and Veterans" and the 12 December iteration "Introducing Veterans and Service Members to Mindfulness." As with most of our CDP Presents webinars, those who attend and complete a post-training evaulation and knowledge check will be eligible for 1.5 CEs.

If you know any doctoral students considering appyling for military internships, you may want to direct them to the CDP Summer Institute: Preparing for a Psychology Career in the Military. We're preparing to open the application period for the 2020 iteration of this course. This five-day course for doctoral students is aimed at those who anticipate or are seriously considering applying for a military internship. It will run from 15-19 June 2020. The application period will open on 18 November. We'll be announcing more details on the program as we get closer.

Over on the CDP blog, this week's Staff Perspective was the final in this year's suicide prevention spotlight. April Thompson discussed the issue of suicide of military spouses in her piece "Counting the Previously Uncounted - Military Spouses and Suicide." In it, she examines some of the unique stressors faced by military spouses and some of the resources that are availablel to assist them. Take a look back at all of the other suicide prevention-related blogs on our Suicide Prevention Spotlight.  Also, don't forget to check out this week's Research Update. As always, it's packed with the latest news, journal articles and useful links from around the Web.

That's all for this week's edition of CDP News! It's a long weekend for us, so there won't be a "By the Numbers" on Monday, but we'll be back to our usual schedule after that. Have a good weekend everyone!
