Good Night, Insomnia
Proven Strategies to Help Your Clients Get the Sleep They Need
with Beth Eilers and Joel Guarna

Using a combination of didactic presentation, experiential exercises, and hands-on practice, this workshop will explore behavioral treatments for insomnia. We will compare and contrast approaches based on cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) with an emphasis on the latter. We will demonstrate and practice a variety of strategies, exercises, and metaphors. This training will give you an understanding of the science of sleep, various and flexible tools to use with your clients, and a workable practice to add to your own self-care regimen.

Members of the Southern Maine ACT Community* can receive the lowest possible rate ($99 vs. full registration price of $140) by completing a  5 minute survey and registering during the Early Registration period (by April 1).

All others may register here.
