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’ve got a busy couple of weeks before we get to the holidays.
On Tuesday, we held our latest CDP Presents webinar entitled “Assessment and Management of Anger in Service Members and Veterans.” If you missed it, don’t worry! We’ve got a recording of the event in the CDP Presents section of our website, so go check it out! While you’re there, you can also sign up for January’s presentation, “Mindfulness in Evidence-Based Practice.” This webinar will discuss the concept of mindfulness, briefly review the literature on its use, and describe the ways to incorporate mindfulness as part of evidence-based practice. This event will be held on 25 January and led by Dr. Ariel Lang, in collaboration with the Cohen Veterans Network. As with most of our CDP Presents webinars, participants who register, attend and successfully complete a post-training survey/knowledge evaluation will be eligible to receive one free CE.
Next Wednesday and Thursday we’ll be hosting our latest online EBP Prolonged Exposure Training via Second Life. Registration for this is all filled up, but there are still spots in our January event, Suicide Prevention via Second Life on 18-19 January. Registration for this event is $45 and comes with 13.5 CE credits. All our currently scheduled events can be found on our upcoming training calendar. If you would like to be notified when registration begins for any upcoming online event, you can sign up by completing the form here.
This week's Staff Perspective was entitled "Putting on the Uniform.” In it, Dr. Lisa French discusses her decision to become a uniformed provider and how the CDP’s The Summer Institute: Preparing for a Career in the Armed Forces can help introduce interested graduate students to what it is like to be a military psychologist. This is the kick-off of our month-long focus on the Summer Institute program. Also, don’t forget to check out this week’s CDP Research Update! As always, it's packed with all the latest news, journal articles, and useful links from around the Web.
As mentioned above, we’re going to be spotlighting our Summer Institute program this month. If you (or someone you know) are interested in a career as a military psychologist, check out our "Summer Institute: Preparing for a Career in the Armed Forces" program. Applications will be accepted through 22 January 2018. This program was created in 2015 to raise doctoral students’ awareness of what it would be like to serve as a psychologist in the Armed Forces and increase their competitiveness for a military internship. This is a great opportunity for students to learn more about a career in military psychology and has been very successful over the past few years. For more information about the program and the requirements to participate, visit the Summer Institute page.
That’s the end of this week’s CDP News. We hope everyone has a good weekend and stays warm! Come back and join us on Monday for another installment in our “By the Numbers” column.
