Sleep training for adults prevents depression, study finds


Every week for two months, a control group received eight weeks of basic sleep education, which taught sleep hygiene, characteristics of healthy sleep, sleep biology, and how stress can impact sleep. But there was no one-on-one training, Irwin said: "They had to take that information and figure out how to use it without our help." The other group received a form of behavioral sleep training called CBT-1, administered in person in a group setting by trained therapists for eight weeks. Stimulus control involves "getting people to get out of bed when they're not able to sleep," Irwin said. Cognitive therapy works to disrupt "dysfunctional thoughts and beliefs about sleep," Irwin said, such as "I can never sleep," or "I might die if I don't sleep tonight."
