CDP News: Mar. 17, 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. March has been quite a busy month so far and we’ve got several more event coming up soon.

First up, we’d like to thank all of the attendees to our Regional Civilian One-Week Training in the Las Vegas-metro area. We spent all week out there training and working with a great bunch of providers. We always look forward to these events and this was not exception. We couldn’t do it without participants and presenters, so thanks again! We’ve got a couple of days to rest up and then we’re going to get right back to it with our next Regional Civilian One-Week Training. Next up we’ll be heading to the Philiadelphia-metro area, 3-7 April. Registration for the event is $95 and comes with up to 32.5 continuing education credits. There’s about a week and a half left to sign up, as registration closes on 27 March.  If you’d like additional information on the course content or to register, head over to the event page. If you would like to be notified via email when registration for future sessions begins, just complete the form here.

Speaking of upcoming events, we’ve got a bunch of online events coming up in the next few weeks. Today is the final day to register for our next online EBP event, a suicide prevention training via Second Life. It will be held from 9 a.m. to 5:30 Eastern on Wednesday and Thursday, so sign up now! On Wednesday of next week, we’ll be holding our next CDP Presents webinar in Adobe Connect, entitled “Ethical Considerations for Working with Military Members and Veterans”.  As with most of our CDP Presents events, those who register, attend, and complete a short post-training survey/evaluation will receive one free CE. While you’re at it, make sure to sign up for April’s CDP Presents as well, which will be on “Building Military Family Resilience”.  Registration is also ongoing for an online training in Cognitive Processing Therapy on 21-22 April. Please note that this event is scheduled to run on a Friday and Saturday.

Evidence-based psychotherapies (EBPs), such as Prolonged Exposure Therapy and Cognitive Processing Therapy, are the preferred method of treating PTSD, but many clients are unfamiliar with EBPs and hesitant to engage in the. In the CDP Blog this week, Dr. Jeff Mann’s entry, “Preparing Patients for PTSD Treatment - EBP Education and Treatment Planning,” examines this issue and discusses how to resolve it. 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 we’ve got for this edition. Have a great weekend everyone and don’t forget to join us back here on Monday for a brand-new “By the Numbers.”
