NeuroBytes: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I)

NeuroBytes: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I)

Course Description

Insomnia is the most common sleep disorder and will be encountered by all primary care providers and neurologists. Chronic insomnia develops as a result of predisposing, precipitating, and perpetuating factors. In this video, we describe the main components of cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBT-I), the mainstay of treatment for this sleep disorder that seeks to modify perpetuating factors of insomnia. We aim to provide greater insight into this evidence-based treatment approach and provide clinicians with a starting point to help their patients suffering from insomnia.

Learning Objectives

As a result of this program the learner will be able to:
  • Explain what CBT-I is and its role in the treatment of chronic insomnia
  • Identify the five major components of CBT-I
