Cognitive behaviour therapy for insomnia (CBT-I) is the gold standard for treating insomnia. It leads to large and long lasting improvements and is effective in the majority of patients. It is not only effective in primary insomnia but has also been shown to be just as effective in patients with a wide range of comorbid psychiatric and physical conditions. It also increases the likelihood of being able to stop sleeping medications.

This two day course will equip attendees with all the skills they will need to set up and run a group CBT-I program. It will cover the theory behind the different techniques, but more importantly, will draw on the experience of clinicians from our specialist insomnia treatment program, to address the practical aspects of running a course, dealing with resistance, modifying the program for specific patient groups and managing medication reduction.  The course will focus on working with groups, both face-to-face and over the internet, but will also discuss the treatment of individual patients. Attendees will be given a full set of handouts to use with their patients and relevant literature to support their practice.

This course would be suitable for doctors, nurses, psychologists, counsellors, occupational therapists, social workers and any other medical or allied health professionals.

The course will be run by Dr Hugh Selsick and the team at the Insomnia and Behavioural Sleep Medicine Clinic which is the largest insomnia clinic in the U.K. and has treated thousands of patients. We aim to give everyone who attends the course the tools and the confidence to start treating patients of their own and previous attendees have gone on to establish successful CBT-I programs in the NHS and in private practice.
