CDP News: 7 December 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. December is well underway, and the holidays are just around the corner.

December's CDP Presents topic will be "Working with LGBT Service Members and Veterans - An Overview". It will be held Wednesday from noon to 1:30 p.m. EST. This 90-minute webinar will provide data related to rates of LGBT person in the civilian, military and Veteran communities and include a history of LGBT individuals in the U.S. and within the military. Participants will be eligible to receive one free CE after attending and completing a post-training survey and knowledge evaluation. You can also sign up for next month’s CDP Presents webinar "Blueprints for Suicide Treatment in the Military - The Lost Art of Case Conceptualization." This will be held on 15 January.

Our next EBP will be December’s Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I) on Thursday and Friday. We’ve reached capacity and had to close sign-ups for this event. However, we are maintaining a waitlist in case of cancellations.

Though the CBT-I is closed, registration is available for January’s Prolonged Exposure training via Second Life. It will be held on 24-25 January from 11 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Registration for this event is $45 and comes with 13.5 CEs. This training will be held via Zoom teleconferencing software, as opposed to our usual presentations in Second Life. We had some requests for events on different platforms, so we’re going to be holding a few events in via Zoom.

Speaking of upcoming events, the next round of CDP’s Couples Webinar Series is also available for sign-ups. The series now consists of four two-hour webinars which will be held from 7-9 p.m. Eastern every Tuesday in February. The course topics are “Military and Veteran Couples: Elements of the Assessment Process,” “Military and Veteran Couples: Evidence-Based Approaches to Treatment,” “An Intervention Model for Working with Military Couples Who Have Experienced Infidelity,” and “Intimate Partner Violence: An Overview of Assessment and Response with Military-Connected Clients.” Tuition for each individual course is $18 or all four courses can be purchased as a bundle for $60. Each course comes with two CEs as well. To register or for more information about any of the webinars, you can visit the CWS page here:

Registration is also ongoing for next year’s Summer Institute: Preparing for a Career in the Armed Forces. 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. The application period will close on 22 January 2019.

That’s all for this week. We hope everyone has a great weekend and stays warm our there. Come back and see us on Monday for a new entry in our By the Numbers series!
