C-06: We Know CBT-I Works: Now What?

Half-Day Course
Sean P.A. Drummond, PhD, Chair

CBT-I is one of the most effective behavioral interventions developed in any field, but doesn’t always work in the real world. This course will utilize the latest data-based evidence and extensive clinical experience to examine some of the reasons for reduced real-world effectiveness and outline a research strategy moving forward to cover current knowledge gaps in these areas.
