Special Interest: CBT for Chronic Insomnia
Dr. Trevisan has a special interest in the assessment and treatment of chronic insomnia. The assessment of chronic insomnia includes a thorough sleep history to understand the nature of sleep problems and factors that may be related to sleep difficulties such as mood and anxiety problems and other life stressors. The assessment consists of a clinical interview and the completion of self-report questionnaires. CBT may be offered for chronic insomnia, which typically involves collaboratively developing healthy sleep promoting behaviors and examining the relationship between thoughts, feelings, and behaviors in the context of specific sleep difficulties. CBT for Insomnia is time-limited and usually ranges from 6-10 sessions.
