The REST Programme® Open Courses for 2024

These courses have relevance for medical doctors, nurses, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, social workers, clinical psychologists, neuropsychologists, counsellors, psychotherapists, speech and language therapists, care managers, case managers, psychiatrists and others who are interested in understanding the impact of sleep problems on the patients/clients they work with and how to assess and manage these to improve sleep, fatigue, compliance with other therapies and performance.

Please note that these courses are not ‘train the trainer’ events – Dr Lee and our other trainers are experts in sleep (a process which takes years!) They are designed so that you can incorporate CBTi into your current practice and help your clients (and yourself, friends and family) to achieve better sleep alongside the work that you currently do.
