I've been interested in study of sleeping since I had hard time to get sleep with stresses. then I've tried to find 'insomnia' and the treatment (therapy). As we know, CBT helps people change the thoughts and actions to get restful sleep.
This article talks about the information of cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia, what and how they are dealing with. CBT for insomnia could provided by not only therapists but also others if they are trained. It is not treating with medication but treating the thoughts of people with insomnia, they try to change the misperception and incorrect idea through session practices. Study tells that sometimes, misinformation of sleep causes the insomnia. For example, people may think that we must get 7 to 8 hours of sleep per day for rested feeling and we try to get sleep earlier. However, it gives an opposite effect that it causes the stresses. sleeping hours are depending on individuals. And also, CBT deals with the person's sleeping habit, environments, and the daily routine whether it is beneficial or negative. They try to treat the outermost infection and then insomniac is steadily recovered.
