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 August and the school year is right around the corner. We've got lots of training opportunities coming up.
On Thursday and Friday, we held our latest online training, Prolonged Exposure via Second Life. Next month we'll be presenting another online EBP, "Addressing Suicidal Behavioral in the U.S. Military: Strategies for Assessment, Crisis Intervention and Treatment." This will be held on 6-7 September in Second Life. This event is $45 and comes with 13.5 CEs. Then on 13 September, we will be presenting "Assessment and Treatment of Sleep Disturbances in Military Populations - Circadian Rhythm Disturbances." Registration is $15 and comes with 3.5 CEs. Sign-ups for both of these events will open next week. If you would like to be notified by email of upcoming online events, you can also sign up by completing the form here.
Speaking of events coming up in September, throughout the month CDP will be spotlighting suicide and suicide prevention. In addition to our two-day EBP training, we will also be hosting hour-long webinars every week all month. First up on 6 Septmber, from noon to 1 p.m. Eastern, will be "Suicide Survivorship: Applying TAPS best-practice Model to Support Military Families, Veterans, and Clinicians". Then on 13 September, we will have our latest CDP Presents webinar "Suicide Prevention for Veterans with Other Than Honorable Discharges." For more details on the remaining topics and registration, please check back next week.
This week on the CDP Blog, Dr. Kaleigh Flanagan wraps up our examination of stigma and mental health with her entry "How Do We Define Stigma and How Long Should We Let Stigma Define Mental Health?" Also, don’t forget to check out our weekly Research Update, as usual, it’s a great summary of the latest news, journal articles, and useful links from around the web.
With that, we're wrapping up our CDP News session for this week. Have a great weekend and enjoy the beautiful weather while summer lasts! We'll see you next Monday for a brand new entry in our "By the Numbers" series!
