A 3-hour training with Dr. Scott Methe
November 17, 2023
PRESENTATION: People with substance use disorders (SUD) face a staggering prevalence of insomnia. Associated factors are substance intoxication, withdrawal, and post-acute adjustment to treatment and recovery environments. However, insomnia frequently persists for individuals recovering from SUD. Given the prevalence of insomnia and the importance of sleep in promoting psychological well-being, clinicians versed in the treatment of insomnia are equipped to provide important and impactful treatments to their clients. This workshop will explore cognitive and behavioral interventions for insomnia, including innovative treatments with a growing evidence base.
Upon completion of this training, participants will be able to:
- Distinguish the effects of various substances on sleep quality and insomnia prevalence;
- Describe several cognitive and behavioral approaches to assessing and treating sleep problems;
- Model the creation of treatment plans that reflect goals and objectives related to improving sleep;
- List at least 3 strategies for integrating insomnia treatment into clinical practice; and
- Discuss emerging and innovative approaches to insomnia treatment.
