Description

This 2-day workshop provides training in the assessment of military-related sleep disturbance and treatment of insomnia via Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I), an evidence-based approach to treating sleep problems.  The workshop begins with a broad foundation of normal sleep, including sleep mechanisms and theories, which builds to instruction on sleep-focused differential assessment with a focus on functional analysis.  From this perspective, we explore the etiology of insomnia and introduce clinical interventions within a step-by-step CBTI protocol. Experiential and interactive elements develop practical skills for using Stimulus Control, Sleep Restriction, and cognitive therapy.  Military case examples are incorporated to illustrate key concepts and techniques. Participants are expected to engage in case discussion and role-plays in class to practice CBT-I techniques. Attendees must attend both days, and must participate using a separate computer rather than joining a group of people viewing via one computer.


This course will be held online through Second Life. If you are unfamiliar with Second Life, we HIGHLY recommend watching these brief orientation videos we have created to introduce Second Life to new participants. Full attendance on both days is required. We will take attendance manually at the start, end and throughout the workshop. Attendees must participate using a separate computer rather than joining a group of people viewing via one machine to acquire credit for attendance. To be successful in a course offered through Second Life, participants will need to complete multiple steps before the start of training. Step-by-step technical support is provided within the course itself, and trained staff are available to assist as needed.  

  1. Have or create a Second Life account (link here)
  2. Download the Second Life Viewer application (link here)
  3. Attend a MANDATORY CDP Open House for proficiency in Second Life. (sign-up in purchase confirmation email)

If you require technical assistance with the above steps, please feel free to contact our Technical Support Specialist, Mr. Phil Thompkins at pthompkins@deploymentpsych.org. For questions regarding the training itself, please reach out to the manager of the workshop, Mr. Aric Bowie at abowie@deploymentpsych.org.

 

A functioning microphone is MANDATORY to attend, in order to hear the presenters and participate in the role-play sessions. Headphones are HIGHLY RECOMMENDED to reduce audio feedback and echoing effects. 

 

Participants are also required to attend one of the pre-event "Open Houses" held online in Second Life, unless they have previously attended a CDP-led training in Second Life. This is to ensure that participants can successfully log into Second Life, enter the training space, hear the presenter and speak with them via their computer's microphone. Participants will not need to attend for the entire "open house," just a portion of the two-hour window.

 

Failure to attend one of the Open Houses will result in being disenrolled from the training.

 

The scheduled times for the open-houses are as follows:

  • 15 May, 9-11 a.m. Eastern

  • 18 May, 7-9 p.m. Eastern

  • 20 May, 9-11 a.m. Eastern

  • 22 May, 2-4 p.m. Eastern​

Failure to attend one of the Open Houses will result in being disenrolled from the training.
