Providers who attend a formal training for CBT for insomnia may find themselves wanting support as they learn to implement these interventions with clients who are also likely experiencing a range of co-occurring behavioral health concerns. In an effort to support providers an disseminate these interventions, Dr. Dietch is offering group and individual consultation for licensed clinical providers and supervised trainees who have attended a formal training in CBT for insomnia either in-person or through the web-based provider training at www.cbtiweb.org.
What is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I)?
Cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBT-I) is well established as the first-line treatment for the management of chronic insomnia as indicated by practice guidelines published by several organizations (e.g., the National Institutes of Health, the American College of Physicians, the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and Department of Defense [VA/DoD]). CBT-I is a multi-component treatment that is designed to help individuals develop healthy sleep habits to alleviate insomnia and learn to manage sleep over the long term.
Consultation will be conducted via video teleconference in a group format with 4-10 consultees who are learning to implement CBT-I or in an individual format. If you would like to engage in consultation, you should have access to patients who are appropriate for CBT-I who you will be actively treating during the consultation period.
