Professor Colin Espie – Sleep problems and how to overcome them in everyday clinical practice


This workshop will explain the central importance, across the lifespan, of sleep and circadian regulation to our functional health and wellbeing. Particular reference will be made to central role sleep as nature’s primary provision for mental health and wellbeing, and in delivering everyday cognitive capability. As well as exploring the nature of sleep itself, we will discuss how disorders of sleep present, how they can be assessed in routine clinical practice and how they can be most effectively managed. There will be an emphasis on acquiring practical skills of assessment and intervention using cognitive behavioural therapeutics (CBTx). The course will be illustrated with case material.

Cost including electronic CPD certificate is £75.00

Due to the current situation we are unable to physically host workshops at the University of Reading. With the ever-changing guidance around restrictions, we anticipate this to be a short-to-medium term arrangement – most likely until September 2021. This is under constant review and we will resume our usual programme as soon as possible, whilst continuing to run the online events as an alternative for those who cannot attend in person.

Events will be delivered online, for which delegates will be sent a link for joining. No previous experience of this tool or specific software is required (although we do recommend that you access the event using a connection with good bandwidth).

Taught by leading experts, our workshops provide training opportunities in evidence-based treatments. All of our courses are accredited and are BABCP compliant providing 5 CPD hours, with an approximate 50/50 split between theory and skills. The cost of the workshop includes an electronic CPD certificate. All workshops, unless otherwise stated, are intended for a cross/mixed ability audience.

We also offer a range of training options in all psychological treatments, all of which are recommended by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE).
