Author in the Room: Therapy for Persistent Insomnia

July 2009 Author in the Room® Teleconference
 
Author: Charles M. Morin, PhD
 
 
Summary Points:
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is an effective treatment for chronic insomnia and can help reduce medication treatment for this condition.
  • Clinicians can be successfully trained in CBT.
  • CBT works well alone for insomnia and, while medication treatment may help early in the course of this condition, it does not have advantages for long-term use.
