Sleep disturbances are common among survivors of trauma. When sleep is disturbed, it can contribute to a host of short and long-term adverse outcomes. Designed for professionals, this training will examine how adequate sleep can help promote emotional and mental resilience following exposure to a traumatic life event. Participants can also expect to learn about the consequences associated with poor sleep and strategies and techniques that may help to improve overall sleep quality among trauma survivors. Implications for screening and intervention will be explored. Empirically-based research findings will be presented throughout this training.
This training will provide participants clinical knowledge and tools to:
a). Define resilience and learn about the possible indicators of low resilience.
b). Develop a working knowledge of the consequences associated with disrupted sleep among trauma survivors.
c). Examine how adequate sleep can aid in the recovery process and promote resilience among trauma survivors.
d). Learn about screening and intervention options.
e). Acquire an understanding of the existing empirical research associated with resilience, trauma, and sleep.
