Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I)
Presenter: Susan Cook Maytorena, Ph.D., PLC
Program Overview: Insomnia is a mental health condition with enormous prevalence and psychosocial consequences. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I) is a structured, highly effective, non-medication reliant treatment for insomnia. Empirically validated, it combines cognitive and behavioral interventions to target the thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that affect sleep regulation. This presentation will discuss the characteristics of insomnia, the structure of sleep and etiology of insomnia with implications for treatment, and provide an overview of the application of CBT-I in the treatment setting. Ample time will be permitted for a case presentation and questions.
Learning Objectives: Participants will learn to:
1) Describe the characteristics of insomnia.
2) Describe the three factors necessary to the production of efficient sleep.
3) Describe the three primary components of CBT-I and have a basic understanding of their application in the treatment setting.
4) List the sleep and non-sleep related conditions that, when present, contra-indicate the use of CBT-I.
