Advanced CBT-I in Those with Comorbid Conditions: A Client-Centred, Evidence-Based Approach

Colleen Carney, PhD, CPsych
presented by Leading Edge Seminars

Friday, December 8, 2017, YWCA Elm Centre (87 Elm Street, Toronto)

Research increasingly shows that Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for insomnia (CBT-I) has a profound effect on sleep disorders and works better than drugs. Colleen Carney is one of CBT-I’s leading researchers and clinicians, and will focus here on more complex issues of case planning and management.

This “Beyond the Basics” workshop is designed for those who are already familiar with the foundations of CBT-I*. You will learn to customize and adapt CBT-I for clients who have multiple diagnoses. A case formulation approach that can be applied across disciplines and clinic settings will be explored. This will enable you to sharpen your understanding of sleep regulation and will complement what you may already be doing in the treatment of a concurrent condition. This approach provides relevant strategies to handle the types of complex cases you are most likely to encounter in clinical practice.

For example, challenging beliefs that vigilance is necessary in trauma-focused therapy can be complemented by strategies that address “bed avoidance” in PTSD. Or, increasing activity in chronic pain treatment protocols can be complemented by CBT-I advice about stimulus control (how to rest in a way that does not interfere with sleep). A client-centred, case formulation approach provides flexibility and efficiency without compromising on empirical support. In addition to learning how to use case formulation to guide treatment decisions, attendees will learn how to develop suitable schedules for night owls with day jobs, how to work effectively with those with chronic hypnotic medication use, and how to safely help those with sleep apnea. You will receive a case formulation form that can be used to guide assessment and treatment decisions in future cases.

*To get a sense of the foundational knowledge required to get the most out of this advanced training, please see description for “CBT for Insomnia: Improving Anxiety, Depression, Chronic Pain, and Trauma Treatments through Sleep Management”. You are welcome to take both workshops consecutively.
Who should attend: Therapists, psychologists, counsellors, social workers, and other healthcare professionals who work with adults with insomnia in non-sleep-specialty settings and who wish to learn how to treat insomnia when their clients have comorbid conditions such as depression, anxiety, or chronic pain.

You will learn —

• The basics of sleep regulation and CBT-I techniques
• How to apply what you learned in your previous CBT-I training to a more advanced, case formulation approach
• Assessment tips to identify the three causes of chronic insomnia
• About eight questions that will guide a thorough case formulation
• How to integrate the treatment components of CBT for depression and CBT for insomnia via a case demonstration
