Session 8: Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia: Principles and Practice
Insomnia is a prevalent and distressing issue that has historically been considered a secondary symptom of psychiatric disorders. However, prospective studies have demonstrated a bidirectional relationship between insomnia and psychiatric disorders, with evidence supporting insomnia’s contribution to depression, anxiety, alcohol abuse, psychosis, and suicidality. Thus, the value of assessing and treating insomnia has come to the forefront in psychiatry. Cognitive-behavioral therapy for insomnia has a strong evidence base and is recommended as an initial treatment in those with insomnia alone as well as with co-morbid insomnia. This workshop provides an introduction to CBT for insomnia utilizing presentation, experiential practice, and clinical scenarios with focus on the assessment and treatment of insomnia co-morbid with psychiatric issues and how to best support the challenges of behavior change.
