Welcome to this week’s edition of CDP News! We like to use this space to review recent happenings in and around the Center for Deployment Psychology, while also looking ahead to upcoming events. We’ve made it through February and are gearing up to go into March with a full head of steam.
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: ● Combat & Operational Stress Research Quarterly -- Winter 201
● PTSD symptom presentation across the deployment cycle.
While we may not like to admit it, most of us are drawn to our work because we like working with others. We like helping people navigate their problems and come through healthier, happier, and more engaged in life. However, there are some patients that make us cringe… make us secretly hope for a no-show…and make us count the minutes during the session if they do show. Fortunately, these patients are few and far between, but it’s important to remember that even with our most difficult patients, there can be important lessons to be learned.
