CDP News: 28 Apr. 2017

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 hard to believe that April is almost over and summer is just around the corner.

CDP had a booth at this week’s ATA telehealth conference  in Orlando, FL. We were there to showcase our efforts in online training via Second Life. It was a great experience. We met lots of folks who are doing some very interesting work in the telehealth. We’re already brainstorming on how we can potentially collaborate with some of these individuals and organizations in the future.

Speaking of online training, we just opened up registration for May’s CDP Presents webinar. The topic will be “Working With LGBT Service Members". This webinar will be held from noon to 1:30 p.m on 23 May. As with most of our CDP Presents events, everyone who registers, attends, and completes a brief post-training survey/evaluation will be eligible to receive one free CE. Make sure you sign up soon! Registration also currently open for our next two-day EBP training in Second Life, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Depression (CBT-D) training on 17-18 May. Next week, sign-ups will begin for our online Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I) training on 14-15 June. If you’d like to be notified via email when registration for this and future online training events begins, please complete the form here.

Technology is becoming an ever-increasing presence in all of our lives. In the past, we’ve talked about several smartphone apps that are designed to help clients in therapy. In the CDP blog this week, Laura Cho-Stutler takes a look at an app designed to help providers themselves, in her entry “An App for Providers, Helping Us in Sustaining Self-Care and Resiliency”. She details the Provider Resilience app from the Defense Department’s National Center for Telehealth and Technology. Also, don’t forget to check out this week’s Research Update. It’s packed with all the latest news, journal articles and useful links from around the Web.

That’s all for this time around. We hope everyone enjoys their weekend. Come back and see us here on Monday for a new entry in our “By the Numbers” column.
