Overcoming Insomnia and Sleep Problems: A self-help guide using cognitive behavioral techniques

Author(s): Colin A. Espie

Personal Development

Being unable to sleep is one of the most common health problems - one in 10 adults and 1 in 5 of those over the age of 65 suffer from insomnia. Billions of pounds are spent worldwide each year on prescribed medications and over-the-counter remedies, often with little real benefit to the sufferer. Extensive research conducted over 25 years has now established cognitive behavioral therapy as the treatment of choice. For the first time these CBT principles have now been brought together into one comprehensive self-help manual. This manual teaches you how to ensure your bedroom encourages a good night's sleep; how to develop good pre-bedtime routines; how to deal with a racing mind; and how to relax. It helps in establishing a new sleeping and waking pattern. It teaches us how to make effective us of sleeping pills and also helps in dealing with special problems including jet lag and sleepwalking. 'The advantages of CBT over hypnotics [sedatives] include the following:...CBT treats the causes of insomnia and produces long-term improvements in sleep; CBT has no side effects.' -- Dr Gregg Jacobs, Sleep Psychologist, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center"
