Quiet Your Mind and Get to Sleep free pdf Insomnia usually appears in the presence of at least one other disorder. Particularly common co-occurring conditions include major depression, generalized anxiety, attention deficit/hyperactivity in children, and chronic pain.

"Quiet Your Mind and Get to Sleep" offers solutions to this sizeable population in a practical, step-by-step manner that simulates the experience of visiting a sleep therapist. This programme in this workbook is based on a proven-effective cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) treatment program created by coauthor Colleen Carney. Readers will learn new skills for dealing with insomnia and complete simple worksheets and assignments that will help them evaluate their insomnia as well as their comorbid condition.
