Clinical Mastery - The Triad of Sleep, Stress & Immune Dysfunction ( 2 x 60 minute sessions) - 2022

Session 1 Sleep, stress & immune dysfunction: breaking the triad for our patients

It is estimated that episodes of insomnia and other sleep disturbances are experienced by 50% of the population. Poor sleep is associated with an increased risk of physical and mental health conditions and can adversely affect immune health. Sleep disturbances are also associated with increased treatment resistance. Therefore, learning effective ways to assess and treat insomnia and other sleep disturbances is essential for health practitioners.

In this masterclass, Clinical Psychologist Dr Adrian Lopresti reviews the interconnection between poor sleep, immunity, stress, and mental and physical health; and the psychological, biological, lifestyle and environmental causes of sleep disturbances. Assessment tools to help practitioners identify causes of poor sleep are covered, and evidence-based treatment options for insomnia covered. These include a review of psychological, pharmaceutical, dietary, lifestyle, and nutraceutical options that target individualised causes of sleep disturbances in our patients.
