The sleep workshop is a 2 hour, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) based course looking at helping people learn more about the science of sleep, some common sleep problems, and evidence-based ways of improving sleep. Sleep is heavily linked to stress, low mood, depression and anxiety and the workshop also gives an introduction to exploring this. A lot of the things we think we know about sleep are wrong, so we are here to dispel some unhelpful myths!
Participants can expect an interactive workshop using a Powerpoint, with useful handouts and links to further resources. Participants are encouraged to take part in discussions and exercises, but if you are not comfortable with this it is not mandatory and there is no pressure to join in.
Currently all the sleep workshops are being run remotely via Microsoft Teams, so you will need a smart phone, laptop or computer, a working email address, and confidential space to take part. There are regular daytime and evening options.
The workshop is focussed on education and is not group therapy. You will not be asked to share any of your own personal information or difficulties with the groups - though you are welcome to share if you feel comfortable! The day before joining the workshop, you will be asked to complete the standard set of questions that we will share with you.
