Course information

The Center for Deployment Psychology (CDP) is offering a two-day evidence-based workshop for Tri-Service military/DoD/GS behavioral health providers on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia online via Zoom, 22-23 February 2022, 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Eastern. Attendance at both days is mandatory. The workshop is free and includes CEs. 

This course will be held online via Zoom. Also, a functioning microphone is MANDATORY to attend, in order to participate in the role-play sessions. Headphones are also HIGHLY recommended to provide the optimal experience.

This intensive two-day workshop provides training in the assessment of military-related sleep disturbance and treatment of insomnia via Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I), an evidence-based approach to treating sleep problems. The workshop begins with a broad foundation of normal sleep (i.e., theories about why we sleep, how sleep is regulated, sleep architecture, and how sleep changes over the lifespan), which builds to instruction on sleep-focused differential assessment with a focus on functional analysis.

From this perspective, we explore the etiology of insomnia and introduce clinical interventions within a step-by-step CBTI protocol. We also go over implementation strategies and different formats for CBT-I such as telehealth and group settings. Experiential and interactive elements develop practical skills for using assessment tools like a sleep diary, questions for a sleep specific interview, stimulus control, sleep restriction, and cognitive therapy.

Military case examples are incorporated to illustrate key concepts and techniques. Participants are expected to engage in case discussion and role-plays in class to practice CBT-I techniques, and attendance both days is required.
