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. This was a short week, due to the holiday on Monday, but we’re back in action.
We held a Suicide Prevention training in Second Life yesterday and today. Our next EBP training event will be a Prolonged Exposure therapy (PE) training in Second Life on 30-31 January. Registration is also available for the 15-16 February Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) in Second Life. Registration for each of these event is $45 and comes with 13.5 CE credits. 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.
Next week we will wrap up the first round in our 2018 Couples Webinar Series. On Tuesday, from 2 to 4 p.m. Eastern, we will present "An Intervention Model for Working with Military Couples Who Have Experienced Infidelity." The next round will begin on 13 February with "Military and Veteran Couples: Element of the Assessment Process," followed by "Military and Veteran Couples: Evidence-Based Approaches to Treatment" on 20 February. Each course stands alone and participants can take one or all three, depending on their interest. Each course also comes with two CE credits and registration for each is only $10.00. For more information or to register, head over to the CWS section of our website.
Also next Thursday, the "CDP Presents" webinar series will have “Mindfulness in Evidence-Based Practice.” This webinar will discuss the concept of mindfulness, briefly review the literature on its use, and describe the ways to incorporate mindfulness as part of evidence-based practice. This event will be held on 25 January and led by Dr. Ariel Lang, in collaboration with the Cohen Veterans Network. As with most of our CDP Presents webinars, participants who register, attend and successfully complete a post-training survey/knowledge evaluation will be eligible to receive one free CE. You can also watch recordings of any of our previous CDP Presents events on our website here.
For this week’s Staff Perspective, Erin Frick discussed at two useful smart phone apps. She looks at the Mood Coach and Virtual Hope Box apps. If you’re looking for more information about apps for behavioral health, head over to our “Apps” section. There you’ll find descriptions and links to several other apps. Also, as always, don’t forget to check out this week's Research Update, with the latest news, journal articles, and useful links from around the Web.
That’s it for this week’s edition. We hope everyone has a great weekend. We’ll see you on Monday for a new entry in our “By the Numbers” series.
