Contents. The training is hands-on by Dr. Krakow and takes various forms. For example:
- At a recent training at a medical school in New York City (Montefiore Medical Center, Albert Einstein School of Medicine), the program consisted of two elements: a grand rounds presentation to the faculty on sleep disorders in psychiatric patients, and then an afternoon workshop, training residents and psychologists in the use of cognitive-imagery techniques for the treatment of chronic nightmares.
- In a previous training in Guelph, Canada (Homewood Health Center) a 3 day program was designed to provide hands-on training of evidence-based techniques for insomnia, nightmares, and sleep-disordered breathing. Included in the program were 2 half-days of group treatment sessions for 15 PTSD patients. The sessions were videotaped for use by the staff at a subsequent time. Multiple in-services, lectures, and meetings were conducted with active and community-based staff to develop plans to integrate sleep medicine treatments into this residential psychiatric facility.
