Before we wrap up the week and the month here, we've got the latest happenings here in today's CDP News entry. It was a relatively slow week as we ramp up for next week's events, but we still managed to spend a few days down in Portsmouth, VA for a a training session. Next week will be a big one however, as we'll have multiple events around the country.
The CDP's weekly research update contains the latest news, journal articles and useful links from around the web. Some of this week's topics include:
• Brief Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (BCBT) for Suicidality in Military Populations.
• Posttraumatic Stress Disorder and Depression Among U.S. Military Health Care Professionals Deployed in Support of Operations in Iraq and Afghanistan.
One of the greatest stigmas that I have witnessed in the military as well as in community mental health settings is the stigma surrounding death by suicide. Unlike other untoward events that therapists go through, this is one event that can be lonely, litigious, and career changing. “Therapist and Legal Issues for Therapists Who Have Survived a Client Suicide: Breaking the Silence” edited by Kayla Miriyam Weiner is a collection of 8 different articles on issues related to surviving the death of a patient.
