As psychotherapists and EAP professionals, each day we see clients and employees who are struggling with getting a good night’s sleep.  In our Western Society, lack of sleep is worn like a badge of honor.  Our clients report feeling tired, sleepy, and irritable. Lack of sleep impacts their work performance, mood, relationships, and health.  According to the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention, insomnia impacts 15 to 33% of the population at any given point in time.  In this course, you will learn to identify the primary sleep disorders and utilize evidence-based techniques to treat your sleep-deprived clients and to help them return to restful sleep. Kim Scott, LMFT will present an integrative approach to treating insomnia.  This approach will utilize the conscious and unconscious mind, as well as behaviors and actions to help your clients sleep better.


  1. Define insomnia and learn how to make a clinical assessment of insomnia.
  2. Define and distinguish insomnia from sleep apnea, circadian rhythm disorders, periodic limb disorder, and restless leg syndrome.
  3. Define and identify the treatment steps utilized in Sleep Restriction and Stimulus Control interventions.
  4. Identify when Sleep Restriction and Stimulus Control approaches are indicated and contraindicated.
