Live Presentation via Zoom
Insomnia (difficulty falling or staying asleep) is a common sleep disorder and cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBT-I) is the practice standard for treating this disorder and is usually recommended as the first line of treatment. This presentation will provide an overview of CBT-I which is a structured and standardized approach program that helps patients identify and replace thoughts and behaviors that cause or worsen sleep problems with habits that promote sound sleep. Unlike sleeping pills, CBT-I helps patients overcome the underlying causes of their sleep problems. CBT-I includes stimulus control therapy, sleep scheduling, improvement of the sleep environment, relaxation training and several other components. CBT-I’s effectiveness has been proven by hundreds of randomized controlled trials and patients maintain their gains over the long term.
