Insufficient sleep has been identified as a public health problem (CDC, 2015 & Institute of Medicine, 2006). Not only does insufficient sleep lead to individuals feeling tired and diminished during the day, but over time, insufficient sleep has been found to be associated with a variety of mental health conditions (e.g., depression) and physical health conditions (e.g., obesity and heart disease). This program will introduce ways in which psychology has been found effective in treating insomnia in children, teens, and adults. The event will include an introduction to sleep and the impact of insufficient or disrupted sleep in both pediatric and adult populations; an introduction to evidence based practice in sleep management with children and their parents; and an introduction to evidence based practice for insomnia management in adults, with particular attention paid to cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBT-I).
Rachel Piszczor, Psy.D. is currently an Associate Professor at Midwestern University in the Behavioral Sciences Department. Dr. Piszczor’s background in behavioral sleep medicine includes training at Children’s Hospital of Michigan where she was part of the hospital’s Sleep Medicine Clinic. During this training, Dr. Piszczor was introduced to an integrative care model of behavioral sleep medicine that involved conducting assessment of and intervention for pediatric sleep disorders alongside physicians, nurses, sleep medicine fellows, and other psychologists.
Following her early training experience in behavioral sleep medicine, Dr. Piszczor went on to help develop a private practice in Plymoth, MI that specifically targeted pediatric sleep disturbance. After leaving Michigan for her career in Chicago, Dr. Piszczor has continued to expand her training and clinical work related to sleep disturbance to a wider range of patients in need of sleep intervention. Dr. Piszczor’s own private practice has focused on sleep work with individuals from across the life span, including work with children, teens, young adults, and parents. Dr. Piszczor has presented to medical and psychology students/professionals, parent groups, and schools on the topics of sleep. Dr. Piszczor is a member of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine.
