From bedside back to bench? A commentary on: "The future of cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia: what important research remains to be done?"

J Clin Psychol. 2013 Oct;69(10):1022-5. doi: 10.1002/jclp.22010. Epub 2013 Jun 25.


In this month's issue of the Journal of Clinical Psychology, Vitiello and colleagues articulate an important research agenda that will help advance cognitive-behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBT-I) research and clinical practice. In addition to this ambitious agenda, we also propose that pursuing a parallel research program, focusing on treatment mechanisms and process will help move the CBT-I field forward and optimize therapeutic dissemination and uptake.

Keywords: CBT; insomnia; mechanisms; sleep; treatment.
