CDP News: March 15, 2013

Once again it’s Friday and time for our weekly wrap-up of events in and around the Center for Deployment Psychology, CDP News.  First up, today marks the end of our 2013 Southwest Regional 1-Week training in Phoenix. From all reports, it’s been a great week for both presenters and participants. I know our presenters enjoy the opportunity to get out and work directly with behavioral health providers in the community.Hopefully, all of the participants learned a lot of great information that they can use in their efforts to treat Service Members and Veterans as well.

If you’re interested in attending, we’ve got one more of these week-long training events currently on the schedule for April 8-12 in the Oklahoma City metro area. Act quickly though, there are only a couple of weeks left to sign up for that one. However, if you can’t attend, we will be adding more sessions to our 1-week lineup in the near future as dates and locations are finalized.

Today is also the final day of the University Counseling Center Core Competency-Extended program at the University of Texas San Antonio.  As the name suggests, this program expands upon our one day UC4 training in order to teach either Prolonged Exposure Therapy or Cognitive Processing Therapy to participants. If you’ve previously attended one of our UC4 events and would like to learn more about these evidence-based psychotherapies, the UC4-E program is headed to The Ohio State University May 8-9, as well as the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill May 15-16. Also, our base-level UC4 will be visiting the University of Wisconsin at Milwaukee on Monday, March 18th.

Looking back at the highlights of the blog this week, we took a look at CDP’s appearance in the media due to our work with Army One Source’s efforts to supply training to behavioral health providers. If you missed it, take a few minutes to look over this week’s Research Update. As usual, it’s got a bunch of great information and makes for some interesting reading.

That’s it for this time around. Enjoy the weekend and we’ll see you on Monday with a new By the Numbers entry!
