Description
Insomnia is among the most prevalent disorders in DSM-V, and poor sleep is a risk factor for anxiety, depression/suicide, and substance abuse. This introductory workshop surveys evidence-based insomnia treatments — sleep hygiene, stimulus control, sleep restriction/compression, relaxation and cognitive therapy — as applied to primary insomnia and special populations, including older adults, and comorbid insomnia. Pharmacotherapy for insomnia is briefly covered, and description of normal sleep, differential diagnosis of insomnia from other sleep disorders and the range of assessment strategies (e.g., interview, sleep diary) are presented.
Learning Objectives
1. Summarize normal sleep processes and epidemiology of insomnia.
2. Comprehend the rudiments of multimodal insomnia assessment and differential diagnosis of other sleep disorders.
3. Explain the basic concepts of cognitive/behavior therapy for insomnia.
4. Appreciate the value and hazards of medical treatment of insomnia.
