Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Insomnia workshop - Melbourne

For the first time, Australian health professionals have an opportunity to spend two days with the world-leading experts in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I), Michael Perlis and Donn Posner.


Insomnia is Australia’s largest sleep disorder with up to 33% of the population reporting regular difficulty going to sleep or staying asleep. CBT-I not only treats insomnia, but it can also improve conditions that co-occur such as depression, anxiety, PTSD, chronic pain, and other behavioural and medical disorders.

CBT-I is an invaluable addition to every clinician’s toolbox to help address a range of physical and mental health problems.

Spend two days learning from the world leaders, understanding the basics and refining your skills in applying them to your clinical practice. These workshops are open to all health professionals as well as students in health disciplines.
