Insomnia is a condition that impairs our clients’ quality of life. It is an independent predictor of suicide and predicts future onset of PTSD after trauma exposure, depression, anxiety disorders and substance use disorders. Many believe that the insomnia that occurs along with another disorder will go away after we treat the other disorder, such as depression. Sadly, that is rarely the case, and unaddressed insomnia is predictive that depression will relapse. Moreover, insomnia is likely negatively impacting your current therapy outcomes, as insomnia predicts greater treatment resistance. Cognitive behavior therapy for insomnia is a very effective tool for those with or without co-occurring conditions. Join a sleep specialist for a workshop that will teach you about CBT-I and myth-bust common mistaken beliefs, such as “we all need 8 hours of sleep” or “sleep hygiene is effective”. Adding the tools of CBT-I to your practice will help your clients sleep and feel better.
