Hosted by AMP Healthcare Education: Better Clinicians. Better Outcomes. Better Healthcare.
Join us for a 1-day intensive workshop, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I), instructed by Psychologist, Researcher and Professor Dr. Colleen Carney. This course is designed for clinicians who are interested in either learning about sleep and non-pharmacological interventions for insomnia, adding CBT-i to their clinical practice or looking to refresh their current CBT-i skillset. By the end of the workshop and a single follow virtual mentorship session, clinicians will have the core competencies to apply CBT-i in their clinical practice for a variety of clinical populations.
In this workshop, you will learn what is insomnia, sleep regulation and how to leverage the body's physiology to get client's better sleep. Dr. Carney will bust a few myths when it comes to sleep, discuss the evidence for sleep interventions and review the pros and cons regarding pharmacological management. Importantly, Dr. Carney will dive deep into what is CBT, the core components of CBT-i, common stuck points clinicians may struggle with and what to do about them. Clinicians will learn about evidence-based screening tools to ensure client's receive the right interventions and get the care they need.
