Providers of behavioral treatment of sleep disorders, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I) or Brief Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (BBTI), need to score sleep logs efficiently and accurately to implement strategies. Moreover, we must teach patients how to score their own logs so that they in turn can implement sleep schedule adjustments without our guidance. It’s not surprising, then, that a frequent topic that arises in consultations concerns the use of sleep logs, specifically, learning steps for how to score logs and getting experience doing so.
To help provide additional practice, here is an actual de-identified patient log with two weeks’ of baseline data. You can score one or both weeks. Then, check out the videos above, which show step-by-step scoring of the log to check your calculations. You may have some scoring questions of your own after this practice, so feel free to run them by us in the comments or by email!
