CBT for Insomnia: Improving Anxiety, Depression, Chronic Pain, and Trauma Treatments Through Sleep Management

Colleen Carney, PhD, CPsych
presented by Leading Edge Seminars

Thursday, December 7, 2017, YWCA Elm Centre (87 Elm Street, Toronto)

Have you treated insomnia and other sleep disorders as a way in to other problems that brought clients to your door? Featured in the New York Times in 2013, Colleen Carney’s pivotal research shows that the success rate in curing depression doubles when sleep issues are resolved. Insomnia is the single most commonly reported health problem in adults, and it often occurs with not only depression but also with pain, anxiety, and trauma disorders. However, non-sleep-specialist clinicians frequently lack the training in how to assess, diagnose, and treat insomnia.

This workshop will begin with an overview of insomnia and its causes, followed by a detailed presentation of how sleep problems can be effectively assessed outside of the sleep laboratory setting. Colleen Carney will provide a brief, easy-to-understand background in sleep regulation in order to effectively troubleshoot problems.

You will learn how to implement CBT for insomnia in those with commonly concurrent problems such as depression, trauma, pain, or anxiety disorders. In addition to presenting hands-on training in the basics of CBT for insomnia, this workshop will cover whether adjustments to CBT may be necessary in the context of such concurrent disorders.

The workshop will combine didactic components with interactive elements; attendees will be provided with case vignettes and sleep log examples, and will be encouraged to discuss their own cases. Attendees will also receive a comprehensive handout, including copies of slides and a complete list of recommended readings.
