Dr. Norwood will present her “Provider Program” which explains both the content of CBT-I as well as how to pass that information on to patients. In the second half of the program she will present two cases illustrating some of the common challenges that show up in teaching CBT-I, closing with a question and answer period. 


  1. Participants will learn the principals of CBT-I including the physiology of sleep, the tenets of cognitive behavioral therapy, the core techniques of CBT-I and Dr. Norwood’s unique modifications to the protocol.
  2. Participants will hear examples and explanations for anticipating patients’ arguments and defensive maneuvers in the face of the challenges of CBT-I.
  3. Participants will learn how to psychodynamically support patients who are doing CBT-I with a different provider, whether that provider is another clinician or an online application.

Dr. Rachel Norwood’s first job out of residency was doing consult/liaison psychiatry at National Jewish Health. During her tenure there she became the dedicated psychiatrist for the sleep service and in that role traveled to Duke University to learn Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I) from one of the original researchers in the field.  Two years later Dr. Norwood left National Jewish to open what is now a thriving private practice and shortly after that completed analytic training at the Denver Institute of Psychoanalysis.  She has provided CBT-I ever since returning from North Carolina, continually modifying the delivery to enhance patient success.  One of her greatest lessons is that teaching CBT-I is more successfully done if offered through a psychodynamic perspective.
