CBT-i Coach is for people who are engaged in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia with a health provider, or who have experienced symptoms of insomnia and would like to improve their sleep habits. The app will guide users through the process of learning about sleep, developing positive sleep routines, and improving their sleep environments. It provides a structured program that teaches strategies proven to improve sleep and help alleviate symptoms of insomnia.
CBT-i Coach is intended to augment face-to-face care with a healthcare professional. It can be used on its own, but it is not intended to replace therapy for those who need it.
CBT-i Coach is based on the therapy manual, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia in Veterans, by Rachel Manber, Ph.D., Leah Friedman, Ph.D., Colleen Carney, Ph.D., Jack Edinger, Ph.D., Dana Epstein, Ph.D., Patricia Haynes, Ph.D., Wilfred Pigeon, Ph.D. and Allison Siebern, Ph.D. CBT-i has been shown to be efficacious for insomnia for both Veterans and civilians.
CBT-i Coach was a collaborative effort between VA’s National Center for PTSD, Stanford School of Medicine, and DoD’s National Center for Telehealth and Technology.
Great app! Needs a little tweaking though
I've used this app for sleep diaries and has worked well. What I am frustrated with however is the audio files during relaxation stopping every time the screen blacks out. I should not have to change settings on phone every time to keep the app open long enough to go through an entire session. Enable it to play in the background please. Otherwise a great app!!
Needs ability to mail log/journals
The app is exactly what my mental health care psychiatrist wants me working on for my insomnia and cgt, the down side is that the app is only good for me and my phone and has no ability to share or mail the weeks log to my psychiatrist which makes it useless for my progress. I still have to go fill out a piece of paper.
Give the app the ability to share logs and assessments with your doctor and it would be a 5 star app !!
This app is not designed to be used alone. It needs at least a self-help book to go along with it. The sleep diary and helps are quite good. They are better than the ones offered in some apps I paid for.
