Title: Cognitive Behavior Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I) and Transdiagnostic Sleep Problems in Clinical Practice: Basics and Beyond
Sleep disturbance is a highly significant psychological health problem. There is an established evidence base indicating that cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBT-I) is a powerful intervention for many sleep disturbances, even when the sleep disturbance is co-morbid with another psychiatric or medical disorder. This webinar will provide an overview of case conceptualization, CBT-I and cognitive therapy approaches, all within a transdiagnostic framework.
