IT’S SLEEP SUNDAY – LET’S TALK ABOUT UNDERSTANDING INSOMNIA…

This week on Sleep Sunday we are writing on understanding insomnia. I received an email from Sleep Hubs International Sleep Charity who are hosting a FREE event on Zoom on the 22nd July between 12-1pm, with professor Jason Ellis.

About the Talk –

During this talk Professor Ellis will introduce us to Insomnia Disorder. Starting with a brief history, the talk will go on to outline the current diagnostic criteria for insomnia. Following, we will be introduced to the theories and models of how insomnia both develops and is maintained, whilst examining the literature as to whether this is the case. Finally, Professor Ellis will provide a brief overview of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I), the first line management strategy for insomnia.

Dr. Ellis is a Professor of Sleep Science and Director of Northumbria Sleep Research in the United Kingdom. He is a qualified Somnologist – Expert in Behavioural Sleep Medicine from the European Sleep Research Society and a Practicing Psychologist under the HCPC. He splits his time between his basic research interests: the pathophysiology of sleep disorders (Insomnia, Restless Legs Syndrome, and Circadian Rhythm Disorders) and his applied work on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I).
