Evidence-based strategies for healing insomnia
The significance of sleep in anxiety, depression, and PTSD
A revolutionary sleep and dream approach that combines science and spirituality.
Dreamwork and its transformative power in psychotherapy
Years ago, during my study of PTSD I became curious about my parents’ sleep and dreams. One would anticipate their nights to be plagued by sadness, anxiety, and nightmares as Holocaust survivors who had been profoundly traumatized. My parents, on the other hand, slept soundly. In fact, they slept remarkably well without medicine for the rest of their lives.
My parents’ experience taught me that sleep loss was not an inevitable consequence of stress or even trauma. And, as significantly, that sleep might give protection against the worst hardships life might bring. I discovered that sleep was not only the reward of a healthy lifestyle, but also its basis. My parents were simply obsessed with sleep. And, they taught me to do the same.
Most of our clients have a CLINICAL ISSUE with restoring healthy sleep.
Although therapists often experience sleepiness in their practice, few are well equipped to manage it. Failure to do so can stymie treatment for mood disorders, trauma, addictions, and even relationship problems.
Many psychotherapists have a PERSONAL ISSUE with restoring adequate sleep.
I believe that the unique challenges of psychotherapy put us at a higher risk of insomnia, which can impair the quality of both our work and our lives.
Integrative Sleep Therapy evolved from my personal and clinical experience with thousands of patients over the last three decades. It is a comprehensive, multicomponent method that integrates:
cognitive, behavioral, and environmental strategies supported by research
Interventions in complementary and alternative medicine
depth psychology and spiritual counseling
This tape describes an integrated (body-mind-spirit) treatment strategy that incorporates cognitive behavior therapy, herbal remedies, sleep hygiene, and spiritual techniques. It also shifts our perception of sleep from a medical requirement to one of life’s sustaining pleasures.
