The Academy’s new guidelines are based on a large review of 37 sleep studies that examined the effectiveness of various treatments for 2,246 insomnia patients. This review showed that Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), among other behavioral/psychological interventions, is an effective treatment for insomnia, and that sleep improvements last over time.
