Trying to get through your day from another sleepless night! We’ve all been there. But what is it exactly that’s keeping you up at night?
For veterans, in addition to the stress of the pandemic, there are any number of factors that could be contributing to insomnia including traumas associated with deployment, years of irregular work hours and difficulties surrounding the transition into civilian life.
But now a growing number of post-9/11 veterans and military family members are learning how to trade in tossing and turning for deep sleep with the help of The Steven A. Cohen Military Family Clinic at Veterans Village of San Diego. That’s because our Cohen Clinic offers sleep specific therapy called Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I) that has been shown to improve sleep in 75 to 80% of individuals with insomnia. See the webinar below on insomnia, presented by our Psychiatrist Dr. Mark Shideler.
