Description

Dr. ​Allison ​Harvey, ​Professor ​of ​Psychology ​at ​the ​University ​of ​California, ​Berkeley, ​an ​international ​expert ​on ​the ​treatment ​of ​sleep ​problems, ​will ​be ​delivering ​a ​daylong ​continuing ​education ​workshop ​for ​clinicians ​in ​which ​she ​will ​teach ​how ​to ​effectively ​treat ​sleep ​problems ​using ​an ​empirically ​supported ​and ​transdiagnostic ​cognitive ​behavioral ​approach.

Learning ​how ​to ​treat ​effectively ​sleep ​problems ​is ​important ​for ​practicing ​clinicians ​given ​that ​sleep ​disturbance ​is ​so ​common. ​Patients ​may ​present ​for ​treatment ​of ​sleep ​disturbance ​as ​their ​sole ​problem ​or ​as ​a ​comorbid ​problem ​with ​another ​medical ​or ​psychiatric ​condition. ​Persistent ​sleeping ​difficulties ​are ​associated ​with ​functional ​impairment, ​mood ​regulation ​and ​problem ​solving ​difficulties, ​increased ​work ​absenteeism, ​more ​health ​problems ​and ​heighten ​the ​risk ​of ​developing ​future ​comorbid ​health ​and ​psychiatric ​conditions. ​

In ​this ​workshop, ​clinicians ​will ​learn ​about ​the ​major ​sleep ​disturbances, ​how ​to ​present ​an ​effective ​rationale ​for ​treating ​sleep ​problems, ​how ​to ​conduct ​a ​case ​conceptualization ​within ​a ​transdiagnostic ​framework, ​and ​how ​to ​use ​the ​nuts ​and ​bolts ​of ​CBT ​for ​sleep ​problems. ​Clinicians ​will ​leave ​the ​workshop ​with ​practical ​skills ​that ​they ​can ​apply ​with ​their ​patients ​to ​effectively ​treat ​sleep ​problems. ​

The ​afternoon ​also ​will ​include ​time ​for ​case ​consultation ​on ​particularly ​challenging ​sleep ​problems. ​Please ​email ​crest@colorado.edu ​if ​you ​would ​like ​to ​share ​in ​advance ​details ​about ​a ​case ​for ​Dr. ​Harvey’s ​expert ​consultation.

Please ​join ​us ​for ​this ​innovative ​training ​opportunity ​to ​enhance ​your ​clinical ​practice!
