This day-long workshop will train practitioners in cognitive behavior therapy for insomnia (CBT-I). Workshop participants will learn the basic elements of a 6-session CBT-I protocol, including assessment, behavioral strategies (e.g., stimulus control and sleep restriction), and cognitive strategies (e.g., cognitive restructuring and designated worry time). Participants also will learn how to incorporate principles and strategies from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (e.g., mindfulness, acceptance, and cognitive defusion) to optimize adherence to, and the effectiveness of, CBT-I. The workshop will include a mix of lecture, handouts, role-plays and case examples.

CBT-I is widely recognized as the best first-line treatment for chronic insomnia, a condition that is especially prevalent in clinical populations. Yet, there are few professionals trained to deliver this highly effective treatment. Further, there are a number of barriers to successful implementation of CBT-I that can be navigated with the addition of ACT principles and strategies. The goal of this workshop is to make CBT-I more accessible by increasing the number of health practitioners who can competently deliver it.

CEs for Psychologists: 6.25 hours (pending approval from ACBS); additional $25 fee for CE certificate.
