Application Content
The Cognitive Behavioral Training for Insomnia app is based on the time honored principles of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for insomnia (CBT-I). Additionally, *CBT-I is recommned by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine as the first line treatment for chronic insomnia*. So why don’t we call this a “therapy” app? That’s easy. Therapy is a one-to-one relationship between a therapist and a client. That kind of relationship is not possible with one person and an iPad or iPhone app. What can happen is that many of the cognitive and behavioral principles found in CBT-I can be incorporated into an educational app for insomnia. Here is a complete list of 5 “Modules” of the app.

Module 1: Education
An introduction or Cognitive Behavioral Training
Basic Facts about Sleep
Insomnia VS other Conditions

Module 2: Stress Management

Blue light from a computer screen can diminish the brain's production of melatonin and, thus, contribute to choronic insomnia. Click here to download a software filter that diminishes the amount of blue light produced by LCD and LED computer screens.

Since the blue light that can contribute to insomnia is present in products other than computer screen, this link will take you to a site that sells light bulbs and eyewear that is designed to diminish blue light.
