    CBT for Insomnia

    Presented by Lori Neeleman, PhD, DBSM

    Live-stream Seminar

    Registration: 8:30 A.M.
    Presentation:  9:00 A.M. – 4:00 P.M. 

    6.0 CE Hours


    Sleep disturbance and insomnia specifically is a common condition and known to co-occur with several mental and physical health conditions including depression and suicide, anxiety, PTSD, substance abuse, chronic pain, cancer and its treatment, cardiovascular disease, and dementia. Historically, insomnia was most often considered a symptom of a co-occurring condition and assumed to resolve with the co-occurring condition, treated with medication, or ignored. Research over the last 20 years has provided strong support for treating insomnia as a comorbid condition to improve not only sleep disturbance and quality of life but mental health conditions as well. Despite strong evidence for the effectiveness of CBT-I, most people with insomnia aren’t offered this treatment due to a lack of awareness and a lack of trained providers. This presentation will provide training in the basics of sleep and the delivery of CBT-I with the goal of preparing the attendee to implement this effective treatment in their practice.

    Learning Objectives:

    1. Outline the core components of sleep science relevant to treating insomnia with cognitive behavioral strategies including the 2 process model of sleep regulation, sleep architecture, wake and sleep promoting neurotransmitters, and primary sleep disorders.
    2. Discuss the relationship between sleep and age, mental and physical health conditions, and commonly used medications.
    3. Summarize the literature for the effectiveness of CBT-I in treating insomnia singly and as a comorbid condition.
    4. Understand the 3-P model of insomnia and how the CBT-I treatment components effectively address perpetuating factors that sustain chronic insomnia.
    5. Develop skills relevant to delivery of CBT-I including familiarity with assessment tools and effective use of a sleep diary, stimulus control, sleep restriction, relaxation, sleep hygiene, and cognitive restructuring.
    6. Summarize contraindications and potential risks associated with implementation of CBT-I and potential modifications for special populations.
