WHY DO IT:

BA is a proven and powerful behavioral approach that is often more effective in treating major depression than use of anti-depressant medications, and is one of the most powerful psychosocial treatments available today.

WHEN DO IT:

Ask your therapist about BA if you score mild, moderate, or severe on a depression inventory. Click here to find out Am I depressed?

COGNITIVE BEHAVIORAL THERAPY FOR INSOMNIA (CBT-I)

WHAT IS IT:

CBT-I is an effective treatment for chronic sleep problems. It is as effective as sleep medication in the short term and more reliable and durable than medications in the long term. CBT-I includes strategies to retrain the body to sleep, reduce factors interfering with sleep, and increase sleep drive to resume the body’s natural rhythms.

WHY DO IT:

Evidence suggests insomnia is an important target in improving overall mental health. Improves sleep in 70-80% of patients.

WHEN DO IT:

Ask your therapist about CBT-I if you have been experiencing sleep problems for at least one month.
