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. We hope everyone enjoyed the spooky Halloween holiday!
We’ve reached capacity on the online EBP training, Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) to be held on 27-28 November. We are maintaining a waitlist, just in case we have any cancellations. If you weren’t able to make it, we’ve got plenty of other training events coming up soon that you can take part in.
Our next CDP Presents will be “Building Military Family Resilience.” It will be held on from noon to 1:30 p.m. Friday. The lecture will present a general overview of military family resilience. A summary of the basic demographics of military families will be presented in addition to normative stressors associated with military family life. Factors that can promote or impede military family resilience will be reviewed, as well as practical, evidence-base interventions and skills that providers can employ to enhance resilience in military families. Finally, resources regarding available programs aimed at promoting family resilience will be shared. Participants are eligible to receive 1.5 CEs for this free event.

Then on 13 November, we will be holding our first online Serving Student Veterans on Campus. This day-long core competency is designed to address cultural and clinical concerns of Veterans and Service members on a university or college campus. Registration for this event is $30 and comes with 7 CEs.
December’s online EBP will be Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I) and will be presented via Zoom on 13-14 December. Registration for this event will be $45 and come with 13.5 CEs. Sign-ups for this event will begin next week. As with November’s event, we expect this one to reach capacity fairly quickly. If you’re interested in attending, you should keep an eye out and sign up early!
Registration is also ongoing for next year’s Summer Institute: Preparing for a Career in the Armed Forces. Next year's event will be held 10-14 June 2019. The Summer Institute is a five-day course for 2nd, 3rd and 4th year doctoral students in clinical or counseling psychology. The application period will close on 22 January 2019. For more information on the program visit the Summer Institute page here.
In this week’s Staff Perspective, we took a quick tour Around the Web and looked in on several interesting stories online, including top schools for Veterans, Intensive CBT-I, the VA's new PTSD website, and more. Also, don’t forget to check out the weekly already CDP Research Update. It's packed with the latest journal articles, news and links from around the Web.
Don’t forget to set your clocks back and enjoy an extra hour of sleep this weekend! Then come back and see us on Monday for a new entry in our “By the Numbers” column.
