Many patients suffer from difficulty in initiating and maintaining sleep for long time although their polysomnography can not explain the causes.

Cognitivebehavioral therapy for insomnia can help them understanding brief sleep physiology and mechanism of chronic insomnia as well as recognizing their thoughts and sleep habits perpetuating insomnia. Therefore, it can correct their bad sleep habit and improve insomnia. We introduce the treatment manual for cognitive- behavioral therapy.
