Moreau, Vincent; Belanger, Lynda; Begin, Gilles; Morin, Charles M.
Residential Treatment for Children & Youth, v26 n1 p21-35 2009
The main objective of this study was to document sleep patterns and disturbances reported by youths temporarily living in residential care facilities. A secondary objective was to examine the relationships between sleep disturbances and mood and daytime sleepiness. A self-reported questionnaire on sleep patterns and habits assessing duration, frequency, and consequences of sleep difficulties, the Beck Depression Inventory-2, and the Epworth Sleepiness Scale were administered to a sample of 66 adolescents. Results suggest a high rate of sleep disturbances in this sample, with 41% reporting insomnia symptoms and 21% meeting diagnostic criteria for an insomnia syndrome. Those with more severe insomnia syndrome showed more severe depressive symptoms and daytime consequences. (Contains 4 tables.)
