CDP News: 26 January 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. We’re almost through with January already, but there’s plenty coming up in February as well.

Next Tuesday and Wednesday we’ll be holding a Prolonged Exposure therapy (PE) training in Second Life on 30-31 January. While registration has closed for that event, we’ve still got a few spots left in the 15-16 February Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) in Second Life. Registration 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.

On Thursday, we held the first CDP Presents webinar of the year, “Mindfulness in Evidence-Based Practice.” It was led by Dr. Ariel Lang, in collaboration with the Cohen Veterans Network. If you missed out on it, don’t worry! We’ll be posting a recording of the event for on-demand viewing next week. You can also watch recordings of any of our previous CDP Presents events on our website here.

The next round of the CDP 2018 Couples Webinar Series 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, and “An Intervention Model for Working with Military Couples Who have Experienced Infidelity” on 27 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.

In addition to all of our online efforts, we’ve got some face-to-face training events coming up next week as well. On Tuesday and Wednesday, we’ll be in Indianapolis, IN to provide training as part of the Star Behavioral Health Providers program. SBHP is a tier-based continuing education program offering CEs to clinical professionals through up-to-date workshops focused on the unique needs of the military community at no cost. For more information about this program or to find out if it’s available in your state, visit the SBHP section of our website here.

Monday will be the final day to apply for the 2018 iteration of the CDP’s The Summer Institute: Preparing for a Career in the Armed Forces. This is a great opportunity for doctoral students to learn more about a career in military psychology and has been very successful over the past few years. For more information about the program and the requirements to participate, visit the Summer Institute page.

In recognition of the upcoming deadline for the Summer Institute, Dr. Augusto Ruiz took the opportunity to interview a couple of past participants in the program in this week’s Staff Perspective on the CDP Blog. They discussed their experiences and takeaways from the program in this week’s 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.

With that, we’ll bring this week’s CDP News to a close. We hope to see everyone back here on Monday for a new entry in our “By the Numbers” series.
