CDP News: 12 July 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. Summer is in full swing, but we've got plenty of events on the horizon. 

Our online training events are becoming more and more popular. We're looking for ways to increase the capacity to meet the demand. Unfortunately, the next two online EBP training events, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I) on 30-31 July and Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) on 21-22 August, have both reached capacity. We are maintaining waitlists for both events, in case of any cancellations. There are only a few seats left for the online Prolonged Exposure Therapy (PE) training coming up on 25-26 September. It will most likely sell out very soon. If you're interested in particpating, we suggest registering as soon as you can. Registration is also ongoing for Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Suicide Prevention (CBT-SP) via Second Life on 10-11 September. To assist in your planning, we've added events on our upcoming training calendar out into 2020 already. We'll be adding more events soon, so keep an eye on the website or sign up for our monthly email digest by completing this form

If you can't make it for our multi-day online training events, we've got some other great options for those interested in enhancing their skills and knowledge. Check out the upcoming Couples Webinar Series to be held in October. These four presentations will run from 3 to 5 p.m. every Thursday in October. The  webinars are specially designed to support clinicians who provide couples counseling to a military-related population. The courses currently offered are: Military-Connected Couples: Elements of the Assessment Process, Military-Connected Couples: Evidence-Based Approaches to Treatment, Military-Connected Couples: An Intervention Model for Treating Infidelity, and Intimate Partner Violence: An Overview of Assessment and Response with Military-Connected Clients. Each course is two hours long and incorporates research, best clinical practices and interactive activities. To register or for more details, visit the CWS page by clicking here

Another solid option is our monthly CDP Presents webinar. The next session will be from noon to 1:30 Eastern on 21 August, "Human Performance Optimization: A Paradigm Shift to Improve Mental Health Care of Service Members." This 90-minute webinar will present an overview of Human Performance Optimization and its underpinnings, alongside case examples across the full spectrum of mental health care.

Speaking of online training, this week's Staff Perspective was by Dr. Tim Rogers, entitled "Delving Into Digital Delivery of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia." As the title suggest, Dr. Rogers offeres a brief examination of the history and some of the research behind digital CBT-I, while also discussing a few of the various options, including supportive digital CBT-I, therapist-guided digital CBT-I and fully automated digital CBT-I. 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 it for this week's edition of CDP News. Come back and see us again on Monday for a new "By the Numbers" post. In the meantime, make sure that you're following CDP on your social media platform of choice, such as Facebook or Twitter!
