Cognitive-behavioral treatment for insomnia (CBT-I) has been recommended as a first-line treatment for insomnia by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine. As with all manualized treatments, there is an art to the science. Come hear one of Georgia’s only certified Behavioral Sleep Medicine specialists discuss the treatment, the science behind it, and the art of implementing it. Attendees will also participate in discussion of case studies to illustrate the concepts.
- Explain the principles of sleep that underpin CBT-I strategies.
- Discuss insomnia, how it fits in with psychiatric disorders, and how it can disguise other sleep disorders so psychologists can make good referrals.
- Demonstrate CBT-I strategies through discussion and case studies.
CE Hours: 3
