The purpose of this educational activity is to provide advanced training to clinical psychologists, social workers, PhD/NP level nurses and physicians in the practice of CBT-I. The workshop is roughly evenly split between didactics and active learning exercises. The learning exercises (Day 2 & 3) include e.g., case presentations and role plays. The lectures (Day 1&
2) cover several topics including advanced models of insomnia, actigraphy, interpreting PSG reports, alternative treatment strategies (e.g., sleep compression, bright light treatment, etc.), alternative treatment delivery modes (e.g. group, telehealth, etc.) and issues regarding medication titration. The programme should position clinicians to more effectively deal with complex issues and cases. This training, along with other CE workshops, supervised practice, a past case load of 10 or more cases, and a reasonable programme of self-study (readings and videos) should adequately prepare individuals for the certification exams.
