It may not feel like it outside, but spring will be here before you know it. The Center for Deployment Psychology has two big upcoming events later in 2023 and it's time to start getting ready for them! First up will be the CDP's third annual Evidence-based Psychotherapy Conference on 10 May 2023. Then 17-21 June we will be holding the Pathways to Military Internships: The Summer Institute event.

The Center for Deployment Psychology and Kennedy Krieger Institute are working collaboratively on a study focused on enhancing evidenced-based treatment outcomes for military children with developmental and behavioral health needs. This project explores telehealth and tele-education feasibility and best practices to increase access to specialty care and to identify programs and service delivery models to enhance the care and well-being of military-connected children. This project include a series of self-paced online courses which include free CEs.
Before we dive headlong into the new year, we're going to take a quick look back at some of the highlights of the blog from the previous year. In this week's entry, we'll be showcasing one post from each month by various CDP staff and faculty members from throughout the year. We hope you'll take a walk through 2022 before joining us for 2023!
