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. Happy New Year to everyone! Along with the new year comes brand new training opportunities to talk about.
Our first event of the year will be an online training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Suicide Prevention on 14-15 January. While we are currently at capacity for this event, we will be maintaining a waiting list, in case of any cancellations. Registration is still on-going for the 18-19 February online Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I) training in Second Life. We've also got March's online Prolonged Exposure (PE) training via Zoom. We have events posted through June on our upcoming training calendar. We've got several more events that we'll be adding as details are finalized. Make sure you're following the CDP on our Facebook/Twitter feeds. You can also keep up with the newest CDP events by signing up for our monthly email digest by completing this form.
Also coming up throughout February, we'll be holding another iteration of the online Couples Webinar Series. These four courses will be held via Zoom from 3-5 p.m. every Thursday in February. The four topics are Military-Connected Couples: Elements of the Assessment Process, Military-Connected Couples: Evidence-Based Approaches to Treatment, Military-Connected Couples: An Intervention Model for Treating Infidelity, and Intimate Partner Violence: An Overview of Assessment and Response with Military-Connected Clients. These two-hour courses can be taken individually for $10 or all four for $35. Each comes with two continuing education credits. For more information or to sign up, click here to visit the CWS page.
Coming up on 23 January, we'll have the latest CDP Presents webinar entitled "inTransition - Helping Bridge the Gap Between Patients, Providers and Healthcare Systems." This webinar will focus on inTransition, a Department of Defense mandated program that supports Service members, Veterans, National Guard, and reserves of all services as they move between health care systems and providers. inTransition provides resources that facilitate treatment engagement during geographic and or career transitions, to include those made to DoD, VA, and non-Tricare settings. You can also sign up for February's CDP Presents "Emotional Support Animals: Ethical, Legal, and Clinical Issues for Mental Health Professionals" too. As with most of our CDP Presents webinars, those who attend and complete a post-training evaulation and knowledge check will be eligible for 1.5 continuing education credits.
The first Staff Perspective of the year is "Drs. Edna Foa and Sheila Rauch Give the Low Down on the New PE Manual." In it Dr. Kelly Chrestman talks with Dr. Foa and Dr. Rauch about the changes and additions to the most recent edition of the Prolonged Exposure Therapy manual. It's an interesting read to see what's new this time around. 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.
That's it for the first CDP News of 2020. We're looking forward to another great year of training here at the CDP and we hope you'll be there right with us. If there's anything you'd like to see us cover this year, please reach out and let us know!
