About the Program:
The Center for Deployment Psychology offers a series of workshops for learning to work with military-connected clients through the Star Behavioral Health Providers (SBHP) Program. This unique program is designed to create a provider registry of civilian behavioral health professionals who are trained in military culture and evidenced-based treatments to increase confidence in assisting individuals with behavioral health concerns, particularly those serving in the Army and Air National Guard as well as Veterans. While only licensed behavioral health providers can be on the registry, we welcome other helping professionals to attend the Tier One and Tier Two trainings.
SBHP offers three tiers of sequential training. All trainings are free with continuing education (CE) credits.
• Tier One: One day, covers military culture and the impact of deployments on families. (6.0 CEs)
• Tier Two: Two days, covers issues associated with military service, including military family resilience, traumatic brain injury, substance abuse, sleep disorders, suicide, PTSD, and 3 hours of ethics. (13.5 CEs)
• Tier Three: Two days, for behavioral health providers only, teaches evidence-based psychotherapies for treating particular behavioral health conditions. (14 CEs)
Live webinars via Zoom held from 9:00 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. Participants can actively engage by commenting and asking questions through the chat feature. Free U.S. phone numbers are available to connect to the audio portion of the webinar if you do not wish to use the audio on your computer or tablet.
Please note that you must complete a pre-training survey for your registration to be considered complete. Due to COVID-19 many of our online workshops are filling quickly. I urge you to fill out the survey as soon as you receive the link to ensure your spot. Also, in the unlikely event we reach capacity the day of the training, late comers may not be allowed to join. Feel free to pass the attached flyer along to colleagues or students who may also be interested.
