Insomnia is a very common disorder frequently seen in both medical and psychiatric clinics due to high comorbidity with other common disorders (e.g., depression, PTSD, chronic pain, cardiovascular disease, cancer).Research shows that comorbid insomnia disorder is highly amenable to change, particularly using the first line treatment cognitive behavioral therapy of insomnia (CBTi).This conference will provide an overview of the basics of assessment, diagnosis and treatment of both primary and comorbid insomnia with CBTi through lecture, discussion and case vignettes.
