Program Overview

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I) is an effective alternative to sleep medication and works with mild to severe and chronic insomnia. CBT-I is an empirically validated approach that can lead to positive results long after treatment has ended. While this course is primarily focused on CBT-I, 2-3 hours will also be spent on the medical management of insomnia and will provide a comprehensive overview of what it takes to practice Behavioral Sleep Medicine (BSM).

  • CBT-I can help clients who have taken sleep medication for years
  • CBT-I is as efficacious and effective as pharmacotherapy in the short run, and is more durable in the long run
  • CBT-I is effective because it treats the cause of insomnia, not the symptoms as medication does

This program should position clinicians to be ready to conduct practicum cases with supervision from credentialed BSM individuals (or established experts). Following this course, an additional period of practice (5-10 supervised cases), and some CE training in sleep medicine proper, the individual should be able to establish eligibility for the credentialing exam administered by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (e.g., the CBSM) via the track which is setip for clinicians already in practice. For more information on credentialing, please visit:      (http://www.behavioralsleep.org/certification/aspx).
