In honor of those of you who served our country and in honor of the United States Veterans Day, November 11th, I have decided to post this very awesome resource–the Center for Deployment Psychology.
The CDP mission is to prepare health care professionals to better meet the deployment-related emotional and psychological needs of military personnel and their families. More than two million service members have deployed during the conflicts overseas, including many who have deployed multiple times. With these increased deployments, service members and their families undergo increased stress and psychological health challenges.
To meet its mission, CDP trains health care professionals through live presentations, online learning resources, ongoing consultation and state-of-the-art education, coordinating activities across a nationwide network of training sites at 11 military medical centers.
