Hypno-CBT® for Insomnia (CPD workshop)
11th December 2020 @ 10:00 - 17:00 GMTGBP145
Live webcast training: A training in CBT for Insomnia integrated with hypnotherapy.
This one day workshop for therapists will provide sound basic training in treating clients presenting with insomnia and sleeplessness issues. The approach used is based on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy integrated with hypnotherapy. CBT for Insomnia (CBTI) is an excellent example of the application of cognitive behavioural therapy and so can become a good introduction to the CBT model. Hypnosis integrates particularly with CBTI – both in terms of inducing rest (leading to sleep) – but also with changing unhelpful habits and associations.
The approach is broadly based on Charles Morin’s book Insomnia: Psychological Assessment and Management which is one of the classical textbooks for CBT for Insomnia. In addition, we will bring a greater focus on relaxation and sleep induction methods (including hypnotic sleep induction) and the use of hypnotherapy to change poor sleep habits and beliefs (e.g. negative expectations about sleeping) – as well as the use of hypnosis to mitigate the effects of a poor nights sleep. The workshop will include practicals including assessment, monitoring, cognitive factors assessment and hypnotherapy.
