Behavioral Sleep Medicine: Evidence Based Treatments for Sleep Disorders
An overwhelming number of patients have sleep problems, which can be disconcerting to clinicians without formal training in the treatment of these disorders. A wellspring of evidence supports several psychological treatments of sleep disorders such as insomnia, parasomnia and circadian rhythm disorders, and there is a growing need for practitioners with expertise in these techniques. However, there is a bottleneck in dissemination. The main goal of this INTRODUCTORY workshop is to educate clinicians about how to provide, and be reimbursed for, empirically validated treatments.
