Perseus Publishing
Based on decades of research, it is now known that the most effective program for the reversal of chronic insomnia is called ?Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia” or CBT-I. However, this treatment is rarely available to the general public as CBT-I is usually only offered by specially-trained psychologists or as part of research studies. People using CBT-I report improved sleep, often in as little as 2-3 weeks and maintain good sleep for years.

Sink into Sleep breaks CBT-I down into a step-by-step, easy format, allowing the reader to follow the same effective program that patients in the clinic do. Although Sink into Sleep is anchored in the science of sleep, the tone of the writing is reassuring and encouraging filled with first person accounts and easy to use worksheets.


Book News
Making extensive use of cognitive-behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBT-I), this work by Davidson (psychology and oncology, Queen's U, Kingston, Canada) is intended for the general reader, nevertheless it rests upon solid scientific research, recommending strategies for both "ordinary" insomniacs and those with special conditions like medical issues or anxiety/depression. Guidance is provided with an abundance of sample forms, all intended to establish a "threshold bedtime" and then follow six key steps. The author also has extensive experience working as a clinician.
