Talk Therapy May Help Treat Insomnia In Individuals Who Have Physical Or Mental Health Problems

HealthDay (7/18, Preidt) reported that “talk therapy may help treat insomnia in people with physical or mental health problems.” Investigators looked at data from 37 studies that included approximately 2,200 individuals. Investigators found that “cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia reduced insomnia symptoms and sleep disturbances.” The data also indicated that “cognitive behavioral therapy was also associated with positive effects on co-existing psychiatric and medical conditions, but it showed the strongest benefit with psychiatric disorders.” The findings were published online in JAMA Internal Medicine.
