As a patient, that has had chronic insomnia for over 10 years, and has done all the therapies, I had never seen it so clearly layed out, and felt more encouraged that being so simple, I can find a way out. Thanks for making this course free!

I learned a lot. However, I will watch the videos at least twice more. Only criticism is that I could not read the footnotes for reference reading. Not really a critical problem. However, my daughter in law does suffer with insomnia and I will recommend these videos to her and my son.

LYNN GREEN

I feel empowered by the information that I received from the video course, Insomnia Explained Clearly. I have suffered from insomnia for years with a scattering of treatments, each having small amounts of temporary success. Through these videos, I have acquired information to immediately begin implementing sleep hygiene and stimulus control. If further intervention is needed, I will be able to have an informed conversation with my physician to include behavioral therapy and the correct medication for my situation. I will sleep better tonight using your plan to reduce my insomnia.

The review of the study showing the value of CBT combined with meds for 6 weeks then CBT alone- that was quite helpful. If you had a definition of insomnia, missed it. Please add a definition if its not there. Thanks for another amazing course.
