Insomnia affects nearly everyone at some point. Close to one third of the U.S. adult population suffers from chronic insomnia, a condition that increases risk for physical and psychiatric disorders including depression, anxiety, cardiac illness, chronic pain and osteoarthritis.
This workshop will teach cognitive-behavioral and yoga therapy interventions for insomnia researched and developed by experts in the Sleep Disorders Program at Harvard University, at Georgetown University’s Complementary and Alternative Medicine Program and at Stanford University medical school.
These tools have demonstrated efficacy in clinical trials on par with prescription sleep medication, but without the side effects, tolerance issues and rebound insomnia that drugs carry. Workshop participants will take home simple, evidence-based tools they can immediately put to use in support of sound, restorative sleep.
