About this Course:
This course will provide participants with information about the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of insomnia. Incorporating new information from neurobiology, physiology and psychiatric research, this workshop will provide an overview of the processes that help us fall asleep and stay asleep, and the many things in our bodies, brains and environments that may disrupt or dysregulate sleep. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I), the first-line recommended treatment for insomnia, will be reviewed in detail. See our brochure for more information.
