CBT-I (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia) Clinical Training Manual , Webinar and CE Credits for Clinicians
CBT for Insomnia
Insomnia is the most prevalent sleep disorder. It affects 15-33% of the population with even higher prevalence rates in the elderly and clinical populations. CBT-I improves sleep in 70-80% of patients, is more effective than sleeping pills and reduces or eliminates sleeping pills in the vast majority of patients, and doubles the improvement rates of depression compared to antidepressant medication alone in depressed patients with insomnia. CBT-I also improves other co-morbidities including chronic pain, fibromyalgia, substance abuse, and PTSD.
Although CBT-I is now considered the first-line treatment for chronic insomnia due to its superior long-term efficacy, lack of side effects, and patient preference, there is a dire shortage of clinicians and sleep clinics with expertise in CBT-I due to a scarcity of training opportunities in this area.
For clinicians who wish to develop expertise in CBT-I, Gregg D. Jacobs, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Psychiatry and a behavioral sleep medicine specialist at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, offers a CBT-I clinical training manual and a two-and-a-half-hour webinar that accompanies the manual. This is the only CBT-I manual and webinar currently available that provides a state-of-the-art, empirically validated CBT-I five session program.
The CBT-I manual and webinar includes the option of certification in CBT-I by the University of Massachusetts Department of Psychiatry. The CBT-I certification is designed for clinicians who want to master the necessary core competencies for providing evidenced-based CBT-I treatment. Certification is a valuable process to help ensure a high level of competency in providing CBT-I. The certification in CBT-I requires passing a 50-item exam that is based on the CBT-I clinical training manual and webinar to demonstrate competency in CBT-I core concepts and techniques. The certification also requires documentation of current licensure as a healthcare professional in any health care-related discipline; or, a minimum of 2000 hours of experience working with individuals in a clinical or coaching setting.
APA and NASW-approved CE credits for psychologists and social workers are also available for this manual and webinar (9 CE credits). This is the only CBT-I CE program approved by the APA and NASW.

CBT for Insomnia Training for Clinicians
The CBT-I Clinical Training Manual and Webinar enables clinicians to develop competence in CBT-I using an empirically and clinically validated CBT-I protocol. It is based on over 25 years of clinical practice at Harvard Medical School and the University of Massachusetts Memorial Medical Center by Dr. Jacobs involving over 10,000 insomnia patients. The manual and webinar are also based on extensive empirical research on CBT-I, including a landmark federally-funded study conducted at Harvard Medical School by Dr. Jacobs and colleagues demonstrating that the same protocol described in the CBT-I manual and webinar was more effective than Ambien (Jacobs, GD, et al. Cognitive Behavior Therapy and Pharmacotherapy for Insomnia: a Randomized Controlled Trial and Direct Comparison. Archives of Internal Medicine, 2004, 164: 1888-96)
