Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I) has emerged as the standard first-line treatment for insomnia. Patients are becoming increasingly complex as referrals for CBT-I become more widespread, and they often present with more than one comorbid psychological and/or medical condition. The busy clinician desires a reference book that they can consult to guide treatment based on the specific needs of the client in front of them. This book will allow for the clinician who is already familiar with the basics of CBT-I to quickly determine how best to deliver and/or modify it depending on the unique needs of their client or patient population.

Key Features

  • Summarizes research on cognitive behavior therapy for insomnia (CBT-I)
  • Directs clinicians how to modify CBT-I for co-morbid patient conditions
  • Discusses co-morbid sleep, psychiatric, and medical disorders
  • Specifies modifications across the lifespan for different client ages and conditions
  • Includes special populations: short sleepers, athletes, minorities, and more
