Group Therapy for Insomnia
Insomnia is the most prevalent sleep disorder. Chronic insomnia can cause serious impairment and has been associated with depression, suicide, and hypertension among other health issues. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) for insomnia has been endorsed by the National Institutes of Health and American Academy of Sleep Medicine as the first-line method for treating insomnia. Seventy-five percent of insomnia patients who undergo CBT experience significantly improved sleep.
