Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I) is a highly effective and durable treatment for those with insomnia. This workshop is designed for those who want to learn CBT-I and customize it for clients who have comorbid conditions, such as the most commonly comorbid diagnosis: major depressive disorder (MDD). The first half of the day will focus on teaching the basics of assessment and delivery of CBT-I, with a more nuanced understanding of the perpetuating factors for chronic insomnia. The second half of the day will focus on a case formulation approach that can be applied across complex cases. All attendees will receive a Case Formulation form that can be used to guide assessment and treatment decisions in future cases. The second half of the workshop will enable attendees to sharpen their understanding of sleep regulation and will complement what they may already be doing in the treatment of a co-occurring condition. This approach provides relevant strategies to handle the types of complex cases most likely encountered in clinical practice. A client-centered, case formulation approach provides the flexibility and efficiency of delivery without compromising on empirical support.
- Attendees will be able to describe the steps in conducting a sleep assessment in a non-sleep specialty setting.
- Attendees will be able to create a case formulation following assessment, using eight key questions.
- Attendees will be able to collaboratively calculate optimal time-in-bed prescription and optimal “sleep window” for clients.
- Attendees will be able to describe techniques to manage cognitive arousal as well as fatigue in those with insomnia and depression.
