Insomnia disorder in adolescence - Assessment and management opportunities

Insomnia disorder in adolescence is under-recognised, under-diagnosed, and under-treated, yet results in significant functional, social, and concentration difficulties.

This webinar will provide up-to-date, evidence-based information for sleep and primary care clinicians and researchers on identifying and managing insomnia in adolescence. Four clinician-researchers with expertise in insomnia management in adolescent populations will present information about the current landscape of insomnia management, cognitive and behavioural treatment approaches, digital interventions, and co-morbid circadian rhythm difficulties faced by adolescence with insomnia symptoms.
