A concise guide to the assessment and treatment of insomnia for busy professionals.

• Examines the evidence for treatments that work
• Guides through the complexities of assessment
• Practical guidance on CBT for insomnia (CBT-I), recommended by AASM and ACP
• Clinical pearls give hands-on advice
• Copyable tools for assessment and CBT-I

About 40% of the population experiences difficulty falling or staying asleep at some time in a given year, while 10% of people suffer chronic insomnia. This concise reference written by leading experts for busy clinicians provides practical and up-to-date advice on current approaches to assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of insomnia. Professionals and students learn to correctly identify and diagnose insomnia and gain hands-on information on how to carry out treatment with the best evidence base: cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBT-I). The American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) and the American College of Physicians (ACP) both recognize CBT-I as the first-line treatment approach to insomnia. Appendices include useful resources for the assessment and treatment of insomnia, which readers can copy and use in their clinical practice.

Reviews and Endorsements:

“Wohlgemuth and Fin’s excellent volume is a compact summary of the theory and treatment of insomnia, especially the evidence-based psychotherapies. The session-by-session case vignette will be particularly useful for the therapist who is just getting acquainted with treatment of insomnia.”
W. Vaughn McCall, MD, MS, Case Distinguished University Chair, Department of Psychiatry and Health Behavior, Executive Vice Dean, Medical College of Georgia, Augusta University, GA

“There is growing recognition that insomnia is common and that it requires sleep-focused treatment, but many clinicians know very little about insomnia or sleep in general. This book provides an excellent concise introduction to insomnia and its treatment with cognitive behavioral therapy. A great addition to any therapist’s bookshelf!”
Philip Gehrman, PhD, CBSM, Associate Professor, Department of Psychiatry, Perelman School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA

“This book provides a coherent, accurate, and comprehensive overview of the prevalence, diagnosis, assessment, and treatment of insomnia. Based on the latest science and with detailed patient–therapist dialogues and specific clinical tools, this book offers a clear blueprint for providing evidence-based care to the millions of people suffering from this highly common and debilitating sleep disorder.”
J. Todd Arnedt, PhD, Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Neurology, Director, Behavioral Sleep Medicine Program, Michigan Medicine, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI
