Beschreibungen

• CBT is a new, increasingly popular method of treatment that provides measurable results and is therefore reimbursed by insurance companies
• Title is ahead of the curve, there's no competition
• Concise, practical manual
• Contains reader-friendly, role-playing exercises to apply to daily practice
Cognitive behavior therapy which has been adapted to treat so many problems, has also brought data-driven and data-yielding treatment to insomnia. Focusing on this evidence-based modality, Cognitive Behavioral Treatment of Insomnia is a much-needed treatment manual that provides clinicians with the why’s and how’s of this approach in concise and practical terms.
This book, which is written as a reader-friendly guide, is intended for clinical trainees, non-insomnia sleep specialists, and for expert CBT clinicians from outside the sleep medicine field who wish to begin the process of learning to provide empirically validated CBT-I.
The Book is organized into seven parts: definition of insomnia; review of the conceptual; framework for treatment; overview of the components of therapy; session-by-session guide; dialogues; assessment and eligibility for CBT-I; and sample documentation. The organizing principles for the guide can best be expressed as two seemingly simple questions:
“Who is appropriate for CBT-I?”
“What does one need to know to set up a Behavioral Sleep Medicine service?”
The guide provides all that one needs to confidently answer these questions.
The Definition of Insomnia.- The Conceptual Framework for CBT-I.- The Components of Therapy.- CBT-I Session by Session.- CBT-I Example Dialogues for Patient Questions and Challenges.- A Case Example.
