Workshop Description:
Insomnia is widely recognized to be the most common sleep problem and is also a leading complaint in primary care settings. The  consequences and morbidity associated with chronic insomnia can be substantial across several domains and can include increased  health care utilization, impaired quality of life, increased risk of falls and hip fractures, increased risk of medical and psychiatric  disorders, and ultimately worse outcomes for all co-morbid disorders.

Effective treatment of insomnia not only improves sleep quality and daytime functioning, but also may improve comorbid  conditions such as chronic pain and depression. In particular, cognitive-behavioral treatments for insomnia have been shown to be  of equal or greater effectiveness when compared to sedative hypnotic medication.

This workshop is designed to provide clinical and research faculty from multiple disciplines the core elements of cognitive-behavioral treatment for insomnia. The course starts by grounding participants in the basics of sleep medicine that undergird the  practice of CBT-I. It goes on to present systematic, empirically validated treatment methods and essential information about the  etiology and evolution of chronic insomnia necessary to inform assessment, diagnosis, treatment, and the handling of  treatment resistance.
