CDP News: 6 July 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 hope everyone had a great 4th of July holiday. 

We have several great upcoming online training events. Today is the final day to register for next week's Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I) via Second Life on 10-11 July. Registration is $45 and comes with 13.5 CEs. On 24 July, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Eastern, we will be presenting a new training on Assessing Military Clients for Trauma and Posttraumatic Stress Disorder via Zoom. Registration for this event is $15 and comes with 3.5 CEs. Then in early August, we will be presenting an online training in Prolonged Exposure via Second Life on 2-3 August. If you would like to be notified by email of upcoming online events, you can also sign up by completing the form here.

Also coming up soon, the next CDP Presents event will be a continuation of May’s Forces for Health series, “Be Ready – The Role of Culturally-Informed Multidisciplinary Care in Recovery.” It will be held on 26 July from noon to 1:30 p.m. As with most of our CDPP events, those who register, attend and complete a brief post-training survey/evaluation will receive one free CE. 

Speaking of the Forces for Health webinar series, all four of the previous presentations are now available for on-demand viewing. The topics include “Moral Injury: Healing the Spiritual Wounds of War,” “Trauma Informed Care: Empowering Warriors to Promote Recovery,” "Facilitating a Multi-disciplinary, Culturally–informed Response to Interpersonal Violence and Anger," “A Multidisciplinary Approach to the Management of Pain and Opioid Misuse Prevention.”  The overall goal of the series is to bring healthcare disciplines together to discuss culturally-informed, multi-disciplinary care and wellness for our Armed Forces members and Veterans across the lifespan.

Due to the holiday on Wednesday, there was no Staff Perspective this week. Don't worry, it will be back next week! In the mean time, 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 going to wrap up this edition of CDP News. As always, we're glad to help keep you up to date on CDP activities and news. If there's anything you'd like to see or hear about in this space, please feel free to let us know!
