It is estimated that one in ten U.S. adults suffers from chronic insomnia. If left untreated, chronic insomnia reduces quality of life and increases risk for psychiatric and medical disease, especially depression and anxiety. The Overcoming Insomnia treatment program uses evidence-based cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) methods to correct poor sleep habits. CBT has been proven in multiple studies to improve sleep by reducing time spent in bed before sleep onset, reducing time spent awake after first sleep onset, and increasing the quality and efficiency of sleep. This second edition has been thoroughly updated by the program developers, Jack D. Edinger and Colleen E. Carney. Patients use the Workbook in conjunction with the treatment they receive from their therapist. Patients will receive information about healthy sleep and the reasons for improving sleep habits, and the therapist will develop a program to address that patient's specific sleep problems. Use of a sleep diary, assessment forms, and other homework (all provided in the Workbook) allows patient and therapist to work together to develop an effective sleep regimen tailored specifically for each patient.

Cognitive Behavior Therapy for Insomnia in Those with Depression is the book for clinicians who recognize that insomnia is more often a comorbid condition that merits separate treatment attention. These clinicians know that two thirds of those who present for depression treatment also complain of significant insomnia and that one third of such patients are already taking sleep medication, and they may be familiar with the research showing that treating insomnia is often important in the management of depression. But what strategies should clinicians use for treating insomnia? How can motivation be enhanced? What about medications? Students and professionals alike will find the pages of Cognitive Behavior Therapy for Insomnia in Those with Depression replete with advanced tools to address the adherence problems often encountered in this group, and they’ll come away from the book with a wealth of techniques for improving both sleep and overall symptom management as well as for treating the insomnia that occurs in comorbid disorders.

" Based on decades of research, it is now known that the most effective program for the reversal of chronic insomnia is called ""Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia"" or CBT-I. However, this treatment is rarely available to the general public as CBT-I is usually only offered by specially-trained psychologists or as part of research studies. People using CBTI report improved sleep, often in as little as 2-3 weeks and maintain good sleep for years. Sink into Sleep breaks CBT-I down into a step-by-step, easy format, allowing the reader to follow the same effective program that patients in the clinic do. Although Sink into Sleep is anchored in the science of sleep, the tone of the writing is reassuring and encouraging filled with first person accounts and easy to use worksheets. Much, Much More Than a Workbook, Sink Into Sleep features: A chapter focused on men (often ignored by insomnia books) A chapter focused on women and their special sleep needs A chapter focused on sleep and medical conditions A chapter focused on sleep and anxiety or depression A chapter on the pros and cons of sleep medication An effective step-by-step guide to cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBT-I) "

Insomnia usually appears in the presence of at least one other disorder. Particularly common co-occurring conditions include major depression, generalized anxiety, attention deficit/hyperactivity in children, and chronic pain. In sleep clinics, insomnia patients with co-occurring psychological disorders outnumber those with only insomnia two-to-one (National Institutes of Health), yet there are no books currently available to help those with insomnia comorbid with another mental health condition. Quiet Your Mind and Get to Sleep offers solutions to this sizeable population in a practical, step-by-step manner that simulates the experience of visiting a sleep therapist. This program in this workbook is based on a proven-effective cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) treatment program created by coauthor Colleen Carney. Readers will learn new skills for dealing with insomnia and complete simple worksheets and assignments that will help them evaluate their insomnia as well as their comorbid condition. Chapters address insomnia and depression, insomnia and anxiety (including generalized anxiety disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and other specific types of anxiety), and insomnia and chronic pain.
