CDP News: 5 October 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. October is well underway and we've got lots to talk about.

If you missed out on any of the suicide prevention webinars from last month, we've got free recordings available for on-demaind viewing on our website here. Next week, we'll be adding the opportunity to watch the webinars for CE credits for a nominal fee. We're excited to be able to offer this and we look forward to providing more on-demand CE training opportunities in the future. 

On Thursday and Friday we presented our latest online EBP training, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Depression (CBT-D) via Second Life. It was a large group of attendees and we were quite happy with the event. Registration for our next online event, Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), will open soon. The training will be held on 27-28 November. Registration for this event will be $45 and come with 13.5 CEs.

Speaking of upcoming online training events, we opened up registration for the Serving Student Veterans on Campus, which will be held on 13 November. This day-long core competency is designed to address cultural and clinical concerns of Veterans and Service members on a university or college campus. This will be our first presentation of this training and we’re excited to share it with all of the participants. Registration for this event is $30 and comes with 7 CEs.

The application period for next year's Summer Institute: Preparing for a Career in the Armed Forces is going to begin on 22 October. 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. For more information on the program visit the Summer Institute page here.

We wrapped up our Suicide Prevention Spotlight, with a very personal blog by Dr. Carin Lefkowitz, "An Afterward to 'The Hilliest Course I've Ever Run'." In it, Dr. Lefkowitz discusses how she has grown since discussing her brother's suicide in a previous blog entry. She mentions how it has helped her connect with other who havae similar experiences. Also, don’t forget to check out the weekly CDP Research Update. It's packed with the latest journal articles, news and links from around the Web.

Have a good weekend everyone. It's a long weekend here at the CDP due to the holiday on Monday, but we'll see everyone again next week!
