Workshop Description

Man with head in his hands on a bed

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, addiction 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. 

Participants will learn:
• Causes of insomnia, including behaviours that interfere with the build-up of deep sleep drive and behaviours that cause circadian rhythm dysregulation
• How to do a thorough sleep assessment
• How to teach clients to calculate their optimal time-in-bed prescription and determine their optimal “sleep window”
• Evidence-based CBT techniques to treat insomnia
• How to implement CBT-I in both individual and group settings
