Chronic insomnia can impair cognitive abilities and the immune system and can intensify other mental and physical disorders. Yet existing medical, psychological, and alternative treatments have only limited success in treating this persistent disorder.

In this clinical guide, Jason C. Ong introduces mental health practitioners to an innovative, evidence-based treatment: mindfulness-based therapy for insomnia (MBTI).

This group intervention combines mindfulness meditation with principles and strategies derived from cognitive behavioral therapy using guided meditations, group discussions, and daily activities performed at home. Participants are able to cultivate greater self-awareness and change their unhealthy thoughts and behaviors surrounding sleep to reduce stress, sleeplessness, and other insomnia symptoms long after treatment has ended.

Mental health professionals are shown how to integrate MBTI into their own practices through detailed session-by-session guidelines. They are also advised on evaluating potential participants prior to treatment by assessing physical and psychological issues that underlie their insomnia. The result is a versatile and effective approach for helping clients find relief.
