Presented by: Anne Bartolucci, Ph.D., C.B.S.M.

Anne Bartolucci, Ph.D., C.B.S.M. is a licensed psychologist and a certified behavioral sleep medicine specialist. She started her professional career as the clinical director of a sleep disorders center and founded Atlanta Insomnia & Behavioral Health Services, P.C. in 2010 in order to focus specifically on the intersection of sleep and psychopathology. At any one time, approximately 80-90% of her caseload time consists of patients with insomnia.

Dr. Bartolucci is a sought-after speaker and conference panelist and has taught workshops and classes for several organizations such as the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine, the Atlanta School of Sleep Medicine, and the Georgia Psychological Association. She is also adjunct faculty at Emory University and lectures to the fellows and psychology graduate students. She is the author of two nonfiction books - Business Basics for Private Practice: A Guide for Mental Health Practitioners (2017; Routledge) and Better Sleep for the Overachiever, which she released this spring. Finally, she has a not-so-secret other life as a fiction author under the pen name Cecilia Dominic, and sleep and its mysteries keep sneaking into her storylines.

Workshop Description:

Chronic insomnia is a common disorder that will strike up to 30% of the population and does not discriminate by gender, race, or socioeconomic status. Although cognitive-behavioral treatment for insomnia (CBT-I) is a first-line treatment recommendation, certified practitioners can be difficult to find, as are training opportunities. Come learn the basics of CBT-I and how to overcome common treatment roadblocks from one of Georgia’s only certified behavioral sleep medicine specialists who has a full-time practice specializing in it.

Educational Objectives:

  • Explain the basic science of sleep and dispel myths – some clinician-instilled – that might be interfering with clients’ sleep.
  • Discuss the most common sleep disorders, how they present in non-medical clinical practice, and the intersection of sleep and psychopathology.
  • Discuss the main components of cognitive-behavioral treatment for insomnia and demonstrate the application of CBT-I principles to different types of insomnia clients through case studies.
  • Explore where clinicians get stuck with CBT-I and demonstrate treatment tweaks that have worked.
  • Discuss recent approaches to insomnia treatment such as Mindfulness-Based Therapy for Insomnia and the transdiagnostic approach and how they can be integrated into a CBT-I practice.
