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. Between the President’s Day holiday on Monday and the inclement weather later, it’s been a bit of a hectic week around here.
Tuesday evening we continued the CDP Couples Webinar Series, with “Military-Connected Couples: An Intervention Model for Treating Infidelity”. This was the third in a series of four two-hour webinars, which are being held from 7-9 p.m. Eastern every Tuesday in February. Next Tuesday's session will be “Intimate Partner Violence: An Overview of Assessment and Response with Military-Connected Clients”. This will be the final event for this session. These webinars have been very popular and have all sold out well in advance. So we will be presenting another run of all four webinars on 14 May. For more information about any of the webinars, you can visit the CWS page here.
Wednesday afternoon we will held this month’s CDP Presents webinar, “Tobacco Control in the Air Force - Trends and Treatment." It was a very enlightening talk about an important subject. If you missed it, we will be posting a recording of the event to our archived webinars page in the next week or so. While you're checking that out, you can also sign up for the 14 March CDP Presents event "The Basics of Sleep: What Every Provider Needs to Know" as well. This will introduce behavioral health and other providers, with no or minimal prior exposure to the study of sleep science, to the basics of sleep theories, physiology and regulation, as well as introduce an overview of sleep-related diagnoses in the DSM-5 with the premise that the range of sleep disorders is broad and not limited to sleep inability. Participants in these webinars who register, attend, and complete a post-training survey/evaluation will be eligible to receive one free CE. Make sure you take a look at the CE details for these events, as they're a bit different from those in previous iterations.
Speaking of events in March, registration is available for Online Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Depression (CBT-D) via Zoom, which will be held on 28-29 March. Next week, we will begin registration for April’s Online Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I) via Zoom. Registration for each of these events $45 and comes with 13.5 CEs. Please note, as with the CDP Presents webinars, the CE policy for these events have been updated.
Continuing this month’s theme of couples and relationships, our Staff Perspective was by Kaleigh DeSimone and entitled “Contextualizing the Resilience of LGBTQ Military Connected Couples.” In it she examines the history of LGBTQ Service member and relates how awareness of this is vital to effective treatment of these individuals and couples today. 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.
