Deployment Psychology Blog
For those looking to understand the first-person experience of a veteran returning to college, the website Half of Us is an outstanding resource containing dozens of video snippets of interviews of returning vets at school. The website, funded and designed in collaboration by the JED Foundation and MTV U, aims to educate and enlighten students on campus regarding subjects as diverse as depression, anxiety, eating disorders, and sexual orientation. Included in the Half of Us web site is an extensive area devoted to veterans on campus.
Time to wrap up the week with the latest batch of news from around the CDP. This week we finished up the September edition of our eight-day "Topics in Deployment Psychology" training here in Bethesda. We'd like to thank all of our participants and presenters for making it a big success. Now it's time to start getting ready for the next session scheduled for the 3rd-12th of December!
Next Saturday, Oct. 6, Dr. Dave Riggs, Executive Director of the CDP, will be speaking in New York City for the Penn State Hershey College of Medicine. He will deliver an overview of PTSD. For more information, visit the site at:http://pennstatehershey.org/web/ce/home/programs/socialworkers.
