Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia Webinar – 1.5 hours. 1.5 CEUs
About 35% of patients in medical waiting rooms have sleep complaints at any one time, including about 15% who have insomnia. Chronic insomnia is associated with increased risk of hypertension, diabetes, psychiatric disorders, accidents and decreased performance. And that tired, foggy-headed, unmotivated feeling decreases quality of life!
Cognitive behavioral therapy is a proven treatment approach for insomnia that can be used in people of all ages, either independently or in conjunction with other naturopathic therapies. The four components are: Sleep restriction, Stimulus control, Relaxation training, and Cognitive reframing. The strength of behavioral sleep medicine is that it teaches people how to sleep, skills that are useful throughout life.
Dr. Catherine Darley is the founder of the Institute of Naturopathic Sleep Medicine in Seattle, Washington and a 2002 graduate of Bastyr University.
