Three Day Basic CBT-I Seminar

In the Spring of 2009, I was invited to Seoul Korea to give our CBT-I Seminar at Samsung Hospital. This was to be my second trip to Korea and I was pleased and honored to receive the invite from the Korean Society of Sleep Research.

My hosts (i.e., the people that arranged for and extended the invitation, hosted me, and managed the seminar) were as follows:

Seung Bong Hong M.D., Ph.D
Professor, Department of Neurology at Samsung Medical Center, Sungkyunkwan University School of Medicine (President of the Korean Sleep Research Society)

Eun Yeon Joo M.D., Ph.D
Assistant professor, Department of Neurology at Samsung Medical Center, Sungkyunkwan University School of Medicine (Secretariat of the Korean Sleep Research Society)

Jee Hyun Kim, M.D., Ph.D.
Assistant Professor, Department of Neurology, Dankook University Hospital, Dankook Univerisity College of Medicine

Sang Ahm Lee
Professor, Department of Neurology at Asan Medical Center, Ulsan university College of Medicine (Vice president of Korean Sleep Research Society)

Chang-Ho Yun
Associate Professor, Department of Neurology
Inha University Hospital, Inha University College of Medicine

Su Jung Choi, RN, CNS
Department of Neurology, Samsung Medical Center

Principles & Practice of CBT-IUpon arrival, and to my surprise, I was asked if the seminar could be video taped. While I was more than a bit intimidated, I agreed. Shortly after leaving Korea, Dr. Jee Hyun Kim presented me with the finished product. The videos, as you will see, are very nicely done with attractive and informative opening screens and PiP technology.

So with this introduction, I am extending the generosity of my Korean colleagues to (first and foremost) my former seminar attendees who wish to see and hear some of the lectures again. The videos will also be available to individuals who wish to attend the Penn version of the seminar but are unable.

One request. Please do not share the link and password entry code with anyone without my permission. 

Finally, one cautionary note, especially for those that have attended the Rochester and/or Penn versions of the course. These lectures are a tad more formal than usual and a tad less animated and articulate. The former owes to my concerns about having tangents and stories detract from the course content, especially for non-native English speakers. The latter owes to my being jet lagged (having crossed some 16 time zones) and sleep deprived (having brought my 12 month old daughter [Mia] and wife [Ari] with me).

Let me close by thanking once more our Korean colleagues for having given us such a wonderful gift. I hope you find the videos to be useful and engaging.
