CDP News: Dec. 2, 2016

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’re heading into the home stretch of this year, but we’ve still got a few more things coming up before we wrap up 2016.

First up, on Wednesday we held the “Military and Veteran Couples: Elements of the Assessment Process,” training. It was focused on providing key elements of the assessment process when treating military and Veteran couples. If you missed it and are interested in learning more about working with military couples, please visit our Couples Webinar Series page. There you’ll find detail about the “Military and Veteran Couples: Evidence-Based Approaches to Treatment” webinar, 25 January, and “An Intervention Model for Working with Military Couples Who Have Experienced Infidelity” on 28 February. Registration for both of these events will open soon. If you would like to be notified via email when registration begins, please complete the form here.

All next week we’ll be down in Charleston, South Carolina, for our Regional Civilian One-Week Training.  This event will be held in conjunction with the Star Behavioral Health Providers (SBHP) program.  This five-day training event will be led by CDP faculty and cover a wide variety of topics relating to working with a military population, from military culture to TBIs, to PTSD to the treatment of depression and suicide. Early registration has closed, but if you’re still interested, there may be a few spots available for on-site sign-ups. Please contact Ms. Genevieve David for details about late registration for this great event. We’re working on finalizing the calendar and locations for the 2017 iterations of the Regional One Week Training. We’ll be posting the details to the webpage as soon as we’ve got them locked in.

Also next week, on Wednesday, from noon to 1:30 p.m. Eastern, we’ll be holding our next CDP Presents monthly webinar. The topic this time around will be “Use of Mobile Applications in Clinical Practice with Service Members and Veterans.” Dr. Erin Frick and Dr. Kevin Holloway will provide a brief overview of some of the many great smartphone apps that are available to help treat patients. As with most of our CDPP events, those who attend and complete a brief post-training survey/evaluation will be eligible for one free CE.

This week in the CDP blog, our Staff Perspective column was by Chris Adams. In it, we took a brief tour of the new Evidence-Based Therapies Resources section of CDP’s website. There are a ton of great resources, videos, and other useful information housed in that section. We invite all providers to spend some time exploring this valuable collection. Also, don’t forget to check out this week’s Research Update. It’s packed with all the latest news, journal articles and useful links from around the Web.

That’s all for now. Have a great weekend everyone and we hope to see you back here next week for a new edition of our By the Numbers column!
