2018 Course Info


The 2018 Fall Conference sponsored by the Society of Behavioral Sleep Medicine (SBSM) focuses on the certification exam preparatory course to bridge the gap for individuals preparing for the BSM exam and more advanced clinicians who want both a refresher and the latest scientific findings for their practice by:

1.       Presenting the nuts and bolts in a “whirlwind” fashion

2.       Highlighting concrete ways in which to make use of this information in practice

3.       Emphasizing how to customize and tailor assessments and treatments for complex patients, and

4.       Varying the presentation of material via didactics and case presentations with question/answer periods as well as including a Jeopardy©-style game to review content areas included in the certification exam.

At this course, attendees will learn from experts how to apply innovative behavioral sleep treatments for a variety of patients with complex presentations.

 

Successful completion by participants - Learners must complete the activity post-test and online evaluation.

 

Online evaluation - An electronic conference evaluation is available on line following the completion of the day.  

 

Certificate - Will be available to you online upon completion of the post-test and online evaluation.
