Description

Sleep disturbances are a frequent occurrence in the general population, and particularly endemic in military populations.  A gap exists between the increased need for behavioral treatments of these disturbances, widely considered the gold standard in many circumstances, and the availability of proficient behavioral clinicians trained to provide them.

The Sleep Curriculum is a distance-based, four month, 48-contact hour multimethodological training in behavioral sleep medicine (BSM) interventions designed to provide behavioral clinicians with an intermediate level of knowledge and competence in working with military-connected patients with a variety of sleep disorders including insufficient sleep, insomnia, shift work, and delayed sleep phase.  At the conclusion of the course, clinicians will receive 34 APA-approved CEs and a certificate of completion documenting total hours of training.

 

The Sleep Curriculum consists of a foundational two-day workshop on Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I) followed by approximately four months of group consultation calls facilitated by a BSM subject matter expert (see faculty biographies below) as clinicians begin to implement BSM interventions.  Throughout consultation, additional content will be provided including webinars on current BSM topics, an immersive experience in a virtual sleep training environment, key BSM literature, and a half-day workshop each on Circadian Rhythm Sleep-Wake Disorders and advanced aspects of CBT-I. The course will conclude with a final capstone seminar, in which case presentations with a panel of leading experts in the BSM field consolidate acquired proficiency.  

The Sleep Curriculum focuses on military-connected patients to include Service members and veterans such that content is anchored in military cultural contexts and case illustrations.  However, as BSM interventions are applicable in a wide range of settings and populations, it is expected that clinicians may apply knowledge and competence gained to a range of patients in their clinical practice

 

Target Audience: For behavioral health providers who treat military personnel, veterans, and their families.  For behavioral health providers who treat military personnel, veterans, and their families.
