Sleep and Sleep Disorders
For individuals in the U.S. & U.S. territories
In Sleep and Sleep Disorders, Dr. Edward J. Stepanski describes and demonstrates his approach to treating clients with sleep problems. His multidisciplinary approach involves an understanding of the nature of sleep; the pharmacological treatments available for sleep disorders; and how medical, nutritional, behavioral, and cognitive components all can affect how a client sleeps.
In this session, Dr. Stepanski works with a 34-year-old woman who has experienced insomnia since high school. He surveys all the possible influences on her sleep problem and then suggests various ways she might improve her sleep, including pre-bedtime relaxation strategies, changes to the way she reacts to sleepless times, and other cognitive and behavioral coping strategies.
