Sleep disorders are a pediatric health problem, which are often unidentified. The Institute provides practicing mental health professionals comprehensive training in pediatric sleep disorders, and advanced knowledge of pharmacological and behavioral treatments of insomnia in children, adolescents, and young adults. Topics discussed include clinical challenges, prevalence, impact on neurobehavioral development, sleep stages, and circadian rhythmicity. Sleep education and hygiene, cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia, and sleep aids and prescription therapies are discussed. Special emphasis is placed upon treating insomnia in the context of comorbid psychiatric conditions, such as attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, autism spectrum disorder, and mood and anxiety disorders. Participants learn practical skills to recognize and manage pediatric sleep problems in clinical practice.
