Assessment and Treatment of Insomnia in Adults: A Guide for Clinicians
Milner, Catherine E.; Belicki, Kathryn
Journal of Counseling & Development, v88 n2 p236-245 Spr 2010
Insomnia leads to disrupted sleep and daytime fatigue. Many people who have this disorder look to the medical profession for treatment; however, it has been demonstrated that psychological approaches are usually more efficacious over the long term. Furthermore, such interventions are safe, cost effective, brief, and do not require extensive expertise. The authors provide an overview of the current best practices in assessment and treatment to encourage counselors to use these techniques when treating clients with insomnia.
