Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia

As many as 70 million adults in the U.S. suffer from long-term sleep disorders, according to data from the American Sleep Association. One of the most common disorders is insomnia, which affects about 10 percent of adults.

Fortunately, effective treatments are available that can help people fall asleep faster, stay asleep and feel more rested during the day. CBT-I, or cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia, may help with the frustrating symptoms of insomnia.

What is CBT-I?

CBT-I is a goal-oriented, non-medication treatment that involves retraining the brain to identify insomnia triggers, so you can get more restful sleep. The goal of CBT-I is to address the thoughts and behaviors that keep you from getting a restful night’s sleep.

TIRR Memorial Hermann’s CBT-I Program consists of an initial assessment and five comprehensive treatment sessions developed to:

  • Educate patients on the function of sleep and increase understanding of insomnia
  • Empower patients for long-term self-management of their sleep
  • Provide skills training such as stimulus control and relaxation
  • Identify and manage dysfunctional thoughts, which may cause insomnia
  • Identify daytime strategies to improve nighttime difficulties contributing to insomnia
