CDP News: 23 November 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. With the holiday, this was a somewhat slower week, but we've still got plenty coming up.

On Tuesday and Wednesday, we'll be presenting our online training event on Cognitive Processing Therapy. Our next EBP will be December’s Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I) on 13-14 December. Registration for this event is $45 and comes with 13.5 CEs. December's training will be held via Zoom teleconferencing software. This is different from our usual two-day training events, which are usually presented in Second Life. This is designed for participants who may be unable to attend Second Life events. We're going to try a few more events using different platforms to provide opportunities for as many people as possible.

December's CDP Presents topic will be "Working with LFBT Service Members and Veterans - An Overview". It will be held on 12 December from noon to 1:30 p.m. EST. This 90-minute webinar will provide data related to rates of LGBT person in the civilian, military and Veteran communities and include a history of LGBT individuals in the U.S. and within the military. Participants will be eligible to receive one free CE after attending and completing a post-training survey and knowledge evaluation. You can also sign up for 15 January's CDP Presents "Blueprints for Suicide Treatment in the Military - The Lost Art of Case Conceptualization."

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.

This month we've been spotlighting military families with our Staff Perspective blog entries. Dr. Marjorie Weinstock writes about "Military-Civilian Community Integration - The Impact on Military Families." In it she details her own personal experiences about her military family living in a civilian community and the differences from being in a military community. Due to the Thanksgiving holiday, there was no Research Update this week, but it'll be back next week.

That's all for this week's edition of CDP News. We hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and enjoys this weekend. Come back and see us on Monday for a new entry in our By the Number series!
