CDP News: 2 March 2018

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 a brand-new month and we've got plenty to talk about.

On Tuesday, we wrapped up this round of the 2018 Couples Webinar Series. If you missed any parts, we’ll be holding all three parts of the series on 17 May. 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. For more information or to register, head over to the CWS section of our website.

Also on Tuesday, we had the latest webinar in our monthly CDP Presents series, “Ethical Considerations for Working with Military Members and Veterans.” We'll be posting a recording of this 90-minute webinar, led by Dr. Jeff Cook, next week. You can also sign up for our 21 March event, “MTBI in Adults – Pathophysiology, Clinical Recover, and Intervention with ‘Complex’ Cases.” This seminar will first review definitions of MTBI, explain the pathophysiology of changes that happen in the brain, and discuss the most typical pattern of good recovery. Common-sense, clinically effective strategies to help individuals recover well from MTBI will be reviewed. In this seminar the term ‘Complex’ MTBI is used to describe cases in which an individual is at risk for prolonged symptoms. Factors that contribute to Complex cases will be reviewed along with strategies clinicians can use to improve outcomes.

There's one more week to register for the upcoming online Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Depression (CBT-D) on 14-15 March. We also just opened up sign-ups for the 12-13 April online Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia via Second Life. Registration for each 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.

This week in the CDP Blog, Laura Copland takes a look at "fitting in" as opposed to "acceptance". She covers this in her entry "A Review of 'Braving the Wilderness - The Quest for True Belonging and the Courage to Stand Alone'."  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 time around. Enjoy your weekend! We look forward to seeing everyone back here on Monday for a new entry in our “By the Numbers” series! In the meantime, make sure you're following CDP on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+.
