The Center for Deployment Psychology (CDP) is offering an evidence-based workshop 13 September 2018, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Eastern, entitled "Assessment and Treatment of Sleep Disturbances in Military Populations: Circadian Rhythm Sleep-Wake Disorders." Registration for the course is $15 and comes with 3.5 CEs. (Please note the refund policy at the bottom of the page.)
This half-day workshop, lead by Diana Dolan, Ph.D., and William Brim, Psy.D., builds on the foundation of sleep education provided in the two-day Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I) workshop. After a review of sleep regulation and mechanisms, detailed instruction on circadian rhythm physiology provides an understanding of contributors to both normative patterns and development of disorders. We then explore assessment specific to circadian rhythm disorders and introduce clinical interventions for the two most common in Service members: Delayed Phase Sleep Wake Disorder and Shift Work Disorder. Step-by-step guidance illustrated by examples underscore recommended techniques. Participants are expected to have attended the CBT-I workshop or have sufficient training in CBT-I to complete this advanced course.
At the conclusion of this workshop, participants will be able to:
1. Breakdown the elements of physiological, environmental, and behavioral elements of circadian rhythms. 2. Evaluate whether patients meet diagnostic criteria for Circadian Rhythm Sleep-Wake Disorder subtypes.
3. Perform an assessment of sleep behavior that utilizes recommended circadian rhythm measures.
4. Plan a course of treatment for Delayed Sleep-Wake Phase Disorder incorporating Dim Light Melatonin Onset (DLMO) and minimum core body temperature.
5. Contrast strategies for managing rapidly rotating shift work with strategies to address fixed or long term rotating shift work.
This course will be presented via Adobe Connect teleconferencing software. Participants will not have to install any additional programs on their computer to take part. However, a web browser is necessary with updated Flash (11.2+) is required.
Participants can test their computer's capabilities by clicking here (or visiting http://admin.adobeconnect.com/common/help/en/support/meeting_test.htm). We recommend those using Internet connections on government or military locations test their ability to load Adobe Connect in advance of the event to ensure there are no technical difficulties.
Microphones and webcams are not necessary, but you will need a computer with working speakers or headphones. It is recommended that Mac users access the training link using either the Chrome or Firefox browser to minimize problems. Everyone must participate using a separate computer rather than joining a group of people viewing via one machine. If you encounter connections issues when using your computer, the Adobe Connect app is available for iOS and Android devices.
