DescriptionIn any given year, 30% of the US population experiences some challenges with insomnia. Despite its high incidence and prevalence, effective treatments remain limited and access to the most successful treatment is particularly challenging. This program will focus on non-pharmacological interventions for people with insomnia. Cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia will be the primary focus of this day-long course, and the goal is to equip providers with a broader understanding as well as concrete tools to help clients overcome insomnia. Recent trends in behavioral sleep medicine have demonstrated some movement beyond basic CBTI, and these interventions will also be introduced.
Training elements include:
- Neuroscience of sleep and wakefulness
- Assessment of insomnia and differential diagnoses
- CBT-I session plan
- Sleep restriction and compression
- Stimulus control therapy
- Behavioral activation and sustaining daytime wakefulness
- Mindfulness-based interventions for sleep
- Pharmacology of hypnotics and medication reduction schedules
