Insomnia and Fatigue after Traumatic Brain Injury: CBT Assessment and Treatment Manual covers the most common consequences of traumatic brain injury, with 30% of patients experiencing chronic insomnia, 20% having occasional insomnia, and 30% - 75% having significant and persistent fatigue. There is a strong empirical basis for the effectiveness of cognitive-behavioral interventions for the treatment of insomnia and fatigue in the general population, thus these interventions are applicable with similar benefits to people with TBI. Written by scientist-practitioners in psychology, experts in sleep medicine, cognitive-behavioral therapy for insomnia, and TBI, the book integrates evidence-based practice collected from TBI and other clinical populations.
