Addressing Sleep Disorders: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I)

 

Three (3) Hour Virtual Professional Development Workshop for Texas Psychologists, LPCs, LCSWs, and LMFTs

Friday, January 15, 2021  - 9:00 am to noon


Workshop Description

Dr. Brown will conduct a workshop on CBT-I. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia has become the first line treatment for chronic insomnia. There is strong evidence that CBT-I is as effective as sedative hypnotics during acute treatment and more effective in the long term. The workshop will briefly review normal sleep and sleep disorders with an emphasis on insomnia. The basic components of CBT-I will be discussed with case examples to demonstrate how to use these techniques. There will also be a description on the requirements for obtaining a DBSM certification.

  • Be familiar with the physiologic factors that control sleep and how these factors can be manipulated
  • Know how to conduct a thorough initial evaluation of sleep
  • Be familiar with the basic tools necessary to improve sleep
  • Be familiar with the measures available to assess sleep and improvement
