CBT for Insomnia Short course

What happens when sleep hygiene doesn’t work?

Chronic insomnia affects every aspect of a person’s life. When you are chronically tired, how much harder is life? How much harder is it to engage with services or treatments?

In this workshop you will learn advanced evidence based interventions to help clients overcome their insomnia and restore normal sleeping patterns.

  • How to use Evidenced Based Interventions for the treatment of Insomnia
  • Practical applications of techniques
  • Step by step treatment plan

Who should attend?

Health and social care professionals who work with individual clients who wish to enhance their range psychological skills and interventions around insomnia and poor sleep patterns.

What difference will it make to my work?

Clinicians should notice positive benefits in their clinical practice by enhancing and complimenting current skill sets and expanding their range of psychological interventions available to them.

What difference will it make to attendees?

Attendees should have a greater understanding about chronic insomnia and its effects on physical, psychological and emotions systems and how by reducing the impact of insomnia, their clients will have more physical and mental resources to create meaningful change.

What difference will it make to my employer?

Clients/patients should hopefully benefit by the increased range of psychological interventions available to them and their sleep disorder. If the client is able to have restful and restorative sleep then they will be abler to engage in other treatments/services.
