Description

CBT for Insomnia in Mental Health Disorders

PRESENTER: Dr Sanjay Rao, Associate Professor of Psychiatry University of Ottawa

Presented by Professor Colleen Carney

COURSE DESCRIPTION:

Background

CBT-I (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Insomnia) is a relatively straightforward treatment to deliver, but providing this treatment with complex cases, particularly those with comorbid mental health conditions can be a challenge. It is important to have a solid background in assessment, how the sleep regulatory systems work, the causal factors for chronic insomnia, and the relative evidence for each technique, in order to deliver this treatment effectively and with confidence. This workshop will teach you to integrate CBT into non-sleep speciality settings, and how to deliver this treatment individually or in a group setting, with flexibility and adaptation when necessary.
