POWERFUL STRATEGIES FOR QUIETING THE MIND TO GET TO SLEEP

  • Harness sleep drive to override mental over-activity
  • Use rumination as a trigger for more adaptive strategies
  • Mindfulness strategies to help with sleep and fatigue

Join Dr. Colleen Carney and discover evidence-based strategies to help your clients increase energy during the day, sleep more deeply, and re-initiate sleep after hot flashes, panic attacks or nightmares. Free your clients from insomnia and improve their mood, pain, self-efficacy and quality of life. The strategies presented in this workshop are brief and easily integrated into existing treatment for depression, chronic pain, trauma and anxiety.

You will develop strategies to help your clients with sleep regulation in order to effectively troubleshoot problems. Learn assessment tools, step-by-step CBT, and counter-arousal strategies that your client can immediately use. Dr. Carney’s engaging workshop will include discussion of case vignettes, experiential exercises, examples of sleep logs and other tools to use in your clinical practice.
