This introductory workshop provides an overview to the field of pediatric behavioral medicine. Participants will leave the workshop understanding normal sleep patterns in youth, consequences of insufficient sleep, and specific interventions to improve sleep. Interventions will broadly cover different pediatric populations (infants through adolescents, typically developing children, and children with special needs) and include a number of different behavioral sleep disturbances (behavioral insomnia of childhood, comorbid insomnia, circadian rhythm sleep disorders and CPAP nonadherence). Case examples will highlight the utility and implementation of these interventions.
Learning Objectives
1. Describe normal sleep in children across development, consequences of insufficient sleep, common pediatric sleep disorders, and ways to assess sleep in pediatric populations.
2. Utilize basic behavioral interventions to improve bedtime problems and night wakings in young children.
3. Apply the use of behavioral treatment strategies to address insomnia and circadian rhythm sleep disorders in school-age children and adolescents.
4. Plan (a) behavioral interventions for improving continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) adherence in children and adolescents and (b) basic methods to analyze objective measurement of adherence.
