BASIC – The Conquering Insomnia Program
The Conquering Insomnia program replicates the CBT-I program developed and tested at Harvard Medical School and the University of Massachusetts Medical Center by Dr. Gregg D. Jacobs in his work with over 10,000 insomnia patients over the past 25 years.
In a study conducted by Dr. Jacobs at Harvard Medical School that was funded by the National Institutes of Health and published in the Archives of Internal Medicine, this CBT-I program was more effective than Ambien.
The Conquering Insomnia program is a PDF (Adobe Reader) based treatment program that is designed as if you are a patient going through the 5-session, 5-week CBT-I program developed and tested at Harvard Medical School.
The 5 sessions in the Conquering Insomnia program are organized over a 5-week period as follows:
- Session 1:
Basic facts about sleep; Conducting your own insomnia assessment
- Session 2:
Sleep scheduling and stimulus control techniques
- Session 3:
Cognitive restructuring techniques; Sleep medication tapering techniques
- Session 4:
Daytime relaxation techniques; Developing stress-reducing, sleep-enhancing attitudes and beliefs
- Session 5:
Bedtime relaxation techniques; Lifestyle habits that affect sleep
The Conquering Insomnia PDF program is also interactive because you can complete a sleep diary each week of the program, e-mail it, and receive interactive, individualized CBT-I guidelines from Dr. Jacobs based on your sleep diary. Please note that sleep dairies must be submitted within six months of date of purchase.
The Conquering Insomnia PDF program also includes:
- Weekly summaries of goals and tips for meeting these goals
- A library of focus articles and blogs.
