We here at the Center for Deployment Psychology are excited to unveil the new Evidence-Based Psychotherapies video section on our website. As part of our multi-day EBP training events, we use many videos to demonstrate a variety of techniques. One of the most common request we receive is participants wanting the opportunity to watch these videos again afterwards to help reinforce the concepts. Now those interested can watch (and re-watch) all these video demonstrations whenever they want.
Even better, not only are the videos from the training events available, there are many others that we don’t have time to include in our face-to-face events. These supplemental videos were designed to both provide additional examples of previously covered techniques, as well as those which weren’t included in existing videos.
Currently, we have five major sections to house the videos. These sections are Prolonged Exposure (PE), Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Depression (CBT-D), and Addressing Suicidal Ideation and Behavior. Each of these sections contains a selection of videos related to the topic. There are numerous videos to watch. The larger sections also include search options to allow users to sort the videos using several filters.
These videos feature CDP staff members showcasing skills that are important for both therapists and their clients. Videos range in length from short to several minutes. They’re well worth taking some time to explore and observe the techniques on display.
One important thing to note, although these videos are a great resource for those interested in EBPs, they are not intended to replace a full training session. These videos only highlight individual techniques and concepts. If you haven’t already, make sure you sign up for one of our upcoming EBP training events, either online or face-to-face!
