Course Description

Insomnia is a common disorder, impacting 10% of men and 20% of women. Furthermore, insomnia is nearly ubiquitous in patients with other mental health conditions and those experiencing significant life stress. Furthermore, unaddressed insomnia can impact the course and success of other mental health treatments. The recommended first-line treatment for insomnia is cognitive-behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBT-I), and this course is designed to introduce this highly effective approach. After covering the basic components of the approach, adaptations for diverse patient groups will be discussed, including adaptations for working with highly complex patients.
