Sleep & Insomnia

Treatment for Sleep & Insomnia

The BHC includes student clinicians engaged in the behavioral sleep medicine (BSM) training program. Students in the BSM Training Program are trained in the identification and diagnosis of sleep disorders, administration of assessment tools and clinical interviews, and treatment of sleep disorders using non-pharmacologic techniques such as cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBT-I). The program offers continual supervision and support for each student from sleep experts Dr. Michael Grandner, Dr. Denise Rodriguez Esquivel, and Dr. Daniel Taylor. Students are trained to treat patients experiencing difficulty with sleep disorders, sleep state misperception, CPAP compliance (i.e., systematic desensitization), and phase advance or phase delay syndrome (i.e., chronotherapy).
 
The BHC offers individual therapy services for people experiencing seep disturbances such as insomnia, nightmares, and difficulty with CPAP adherence. Individual therapy services for sleep disturbance in the BHC all use approaches supported by a large body of research. These treatments primarily focus on behavior change and include conversations on common, unhelpful thoughts about sleep.
