Research increasingly shows that Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I) has a profound effect on chronic insomnia and works better than drugs and other therapies. Insomnia is the single most commonly reported health problem in adults, and it commonly co-occurs with depression, chronic pain, anxiety, and trauma disorders. When insomnia is addressed, success rates for treating co-morbid conditions also improve. However, non-sleep specialist clinicians frequently lack the training in how to assess, diagnose and treat insomnia.
This workshop, led by a leading expert in the treatment of insomnia, will provide detailed instruction about how to effectively implement CBT for Insomnia in those with commonly concurrent problems such as depression, trauma, pain, addiction or anxiety disorders. Participants will also learn how to teach this information to clients in group and workshop settings.
The workshop will combine didactic and interactive elements including case vignettes, sleep log examples, and experiential exercises including devising behavioural experiments, fatigue attributions and management, and calculating sleep schedule recommendations from actual sleep diaries.
You Will Learn:
Who Should Attend?
This workshop is suitable for mental health professionals, health-care professionals and direct service workers who wish to learn how to treat insomnia with their adult clients who have comorbid conditions such as depression, anxiety, PTSD, addiction or chronic pain.
