Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

As a treatment for insomnia, cognitive-behavioral therapy is the practice of changing your thoughts and actions surrounding rest. Its goal is to develop healthy habits that support restful sleep. This approach is based on the knowledge that there is a strong link between the way a person thinks and feels and how they act. By changing how you perceive sleep, or by dealing with the underlying anxieties and thought patterns keeping you awake, CBT can make it easier to fall and stay asleep on a regular basis. A variety of CBT approaches may be utilized by your doctor in order to help you achieve the results you need to get enough sleep every night.

How Do You Know If You Need CBT?

Our Center has accredited sites in Weslaco and McAllen where you can get an evaluation of your sleep needs from our knowledgeable and skilled professionals. These sites include modern, safe, and secure sleep labs where our sleep specialists will monitor your sleep. By recording aspects of your sleep such as your brain waves, eye movements, muscle activity, breathing effort and airflow, blood oxygen level, heart rate and rhythm, the duration of your stages of sleep, body positions, and movements of your arms and legs while sleeping, our professionals can determine whether you have a sleep disorder. Our Sleep Specialist will analyze the results to determine whether you require treatment, including CBT, to address your sleep needs.

CBT Treatment

Cognitive-behavioral therapy can take a number of forms, based upon what your provider believes will be most helpful for your sleep needs. These approaches include the following:

Stimulus Control
This approach focuses on creating positive associations with bedtime and sleep.

Cognitive Restructuring
This approach focuses on breaking cycles of worry and negative thought patterns that inhibit sleep.

Relaxation Training and Biofeedback
This approach teaches you skills such as muscle relaxation and breathing to help you relax and let go of tension while you are in bed.

Sleep Restriction
This approach temporarily reduces a person’s time in bed in order to increase the amount of time they spend sleeping in bed and break habits of lying awake for hours.

Sleep Hygiene Training
This approach teaches you healthy habits that support sleep, such as consistent bedtime routines, electronics avoidance at night, and other strategies.
