"Sleep well and live better: overcoming insomnia using CBT" - the links between sleep disturbance and depression (2nd post)
Last updated on 10th January 2012
I wrote a first post last month about a workshop I went to given by Professor Colin Espie - "Sleep well and live better: overcoming insomnia using CBT". I mentioned that he went through the sequence: What is insomnia? Why is it a big deal? Why is cognitive behaviour therapy relevant? Is it clinically effective? How can it be delivered in real world practice? In today's post I would like to look more at Why is it a big deal? And I would like particularly to focus on links between insomnia and depression.
