Harness sleep drive to override mental over-activity
Use rumination as a trigger for more adaptive strategies
Mindfulness strategies to help with sleep and fatigue

Join Dr. Colleen Carney and discover evidence-based strategies to help your clients increase energy during the day, sleep more deeply, and re-initiate sleep after hot flashes, panic attacks or nightmares. Free your clients from insomnia and improve their mood, pain, self-efficacy and quality of life. The strategies presented in this workshop are brief and easily integrated into existing treatment for depression, chronic pain, trauma and anxiety.

You will develop strategies to help your clients with sleep regulation in order to effectively troubleshoot problems. Learn assessment tools, step-by-step CBT, and counter-arousal strategies that your client can immediately use. Dr. Carney’s engaging workshop will include discussion of case vignettes, experiential exercises, examples of sleep logs and other tools to use in your clinical practice.

1. Identify sleep disorders which require referrals to a sleep center.
2. Integrate strategies for pre-sleep arousal by building a stronger drive for deep sleep.
3. Discuss why CBT-I is effective for clients with co-occurring issues such as pain, depression, anxiety or trauma.
4. List treatment strategies clients can easily implement to manage their fatigue.
5. Design behavioral experiments for clients to test unhelpful beliefs about sleep.
6. Identify conditioned arousal and teach clients strategies to reverse it.
