CBT Workshops effective in encourage men with insomnia to seek treatment


Statistically, men seek out treatment for insomnia less than women. One approach that has been successful in dealing with this tread is CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) Workshops. According to a study authored by June Brown, PhD, of King’s College in London, UK, their workshops attracted 111 men within a six month period, a large number, of which 50 percent had never approached their PCP about insomnia.

The importance of the study, in practical terms, is the creation of a renewed awareness of the reluctance of men to seek treatment for anxiety and sleeplessness in the minds of physicians, care pastors and others that men may commonly confide in. The following is an excerpt of an article from News-Medical.Net that discusses that study:

Despite the positive results that it brings in the treatment of insomnia, access to cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) has been difficult given the limited awareness of CBT services amongst referrers such as primary care providers.

In addition to the low capacity among services to provide CBT, there is a gender imbalance, and men tend to seek help less frequently for their insomnia than women. The development and implementation of a CBT workshop is an effective means for getting men to seek help for the sleep disorder, according to research presented at SLEEP 2007, the 21st Annual Meeting of the Associated Professional Sleep Societies (APSS).

The study, authored by June Brown, PhD, of King’s College in London, UK, was based on the decision to offer men-only workshops with day-long psychological treatment for insomnia. Men could refer themselves to the workshops, which were run in leisure centers.
