Description

Stuck progress. Incomplete treatment gains. Symptom recurrence.

These aren’t the outcomes you want for your clients.

Anxiety, PTSD, and depression share a common problem - sleep disturbance. And you’re likely underestimating its significance.

While old wisdom suggested that insomnia was just a symptom of other disorders that would resolve along with the primary mental health condition...

...new evidence reveals that not only is insomnia a risk factor for numerous behavioral health issues and medical problems - if left unaddressed, insomnia complicates your treatment efforts and diminishes your clients’ recovery.

Insomnia must be targeted directly - and often, simply helping your clients sleep better actually decreases their other symptoms.

In this essential training, Dr. Donn Posner, distinguished Diplomate in Behavioral Sleep Medicine and founding member of the Society of Behavioral Sleep Medicine, will teach you Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I), a powerful evidence-based, gold-standard treatment to help your clients put chronic insomnia behind them. You’ll get the skills you need to:

  • Increase sleep efficiency so your clients consistently get the rest they need
  • Transform your clients’ bed into a cue for sleep so they don’t toss and turn all night
  • Deconstruct unhelpful beliefs to decrease anxiety about sleep
  • Troubleshoot sleep-related problems at any stage of therapy

Register today and add to your clinical toolbox the treatment that is more strongly recommended than medications to improve sleep!
