Alisha L. Brosse, Ph.D., Licensed Clinical Psychologist
'End the Insomnia Struggle: Individualized Approach to Treating Insomnia Using CBT-I & ACT'

Alisha is a licensed clinical psychologist, committed to practicing and disseminating evidence-based psychotherapy for a wide range of presenting problems, especially sleep, mood, and anxiety disorders. She operates a private practice in Boulder, Colorado. Dr. Brosse is a Senior Research Associate in the Department of Psychology and Neuroscience at the University of Colorado Boulder, where she directs a bipolar specialty clinic.

Presentation overview:

Cognitive behavior therapy for insomnia (CBT-I) is a highly effective, multi-component treatment that is widely accepted as the gold-standard treatment for insomnia. Yet, many clients struggle to implement it. In this full-day workshop, participants will learn how to treat insomnia using the core components of traditional CBT-I (i.e., psychoeducation; stimulus control; sleep restriction; cognitive therapy). They further will learn how to enhance client outcomes with the addition of strategies from acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), such as willingness, cognitive defusion, and mindfulness. Instruction will include lecture, role play, case examples, and practice. Client worksheets will be provided.

Reserve a room at the ClubHouse Hotel & Suites for a special rate by August 25, 2017.
