Brief interventions for cognitive behaviour for insomnia (CBT-I): A practical training day

Venue: The Royal Society of Medicine, 1 Wimpole Street, London, W1G DAE


Event Notes:

Insomnia is the most common sleep disorder in the UK, which when untreated, is associated with significant daytime dysfunction, impairing mental health, careers and quality of life. NICE (2022) recommend Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I) as the first line treatment for insomnia. Despite this, practical CBT-I teaching can be challenging for clinicians to access, limiting availability for patients.

By attending this event, you will learn how to deliver the most effective, evidence-based treatments for insomnia, including practical implementation of CBT-I and how to avoid common pitfalls. We will be holding small group teaching sessions for you to practice CBT-I with the aim of arming you with the confidence and practical tools to deliver therapy in your own clinical environment.

By attending, you will:

  • Learn about the core brief CBT-I techniques
  • Practice implementation of these techniques
  • Learn how to deal with common problems when delivering CBT-I
