The sleep psychology workshop for postgraduate psychology students

The sleep psychology workshop is a FREE, 6-hour live online training designed to enhance postgraduate psychology students' knowledge and skills in managing sleep disturbances.


Sleep problems commonly co-occur with mental health conditions. Sleep disturbances such as insomnia can contribute to the onset and severity of mental health conditions (e.g. depression, anxiety, PTSD). However, research shows that psychologists receive minimal education on how to manage insomnia in line with current evidence-based guidelines. This is why we developed the Sleep Psychology Workshop to help postgraduate psychology students learn how to deliver evidence-based sleep treatments. You will learn about the bidirectional relationship between sleep and mental health, how to take a sleep history, sleep diagnosis skills, and the basics of delivering the first-line treatment for insomnia, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Insomnia. The workshop contains interactive activities and is run over two 3-hour sessions, so you will have the opportunity to put your new sleep psychology knowledge into practice.

Research conducted on the Sleep Psychology Workshop in Victoria demonstrated that postgraduate psychology students experienced significant improvements in their sleep psychology knowledge and skills, with gains maintained over 12 months later! We hope you can join us for the Sleep Psychology Workshop and take your sleep skills to the next level.
