Reviews

"Harvey and Buysse present a superb guide to their novel treatment program. By integrating different perspectives on sleep, this book shifts the emphasis from the identification of sleep disorders to the promotion of sleep health and well-being. The authors provide a robust review of the literature, followed by a thorough explanation of how to implement the treatment. The book maintains a level of approachability that supports the reader's complete understanding, making it a useful tool for both practicing professionals and graduate students."--Aaron T. Beck, MD, University Professor Emeritus of Psychiatry, Perelman School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania

"Harvey and Buysse are among the most influential and respected sleep researchers in the world, whose contributions to sleep science and to healthcare practice have been outstanding. I am certain this volume will become a classic for professionals working in sleep laboratories or clinics. Harvey and Buysse recognize that sleep and circadian processes are fundamental therapeutic targets. They show how a transdiagnostic perspective offers new pathways to effective clinical care. This book is wonderfully constructed and a joy to read."--Colin A. Espie, PhD, DSc, Professor of Sleep Medicine, Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences, University of Oxford, United Kingdom

"A true gift for clinicians, this accessible, engaging, and implementable clinical guide effectively addresses a broad range of sleep problems and disorders. The expertise that Harvey and Buysse offer is unparalleled, and their compassion for clients who struggle with sleep problems is present on every page. This book has so much to offer to our work with clients to promote healthy sleep and well-being."--Sona Dimidjian, PhD, Department of Psychology and Neuroscience, University of Colorado Boulder

"I highly recommend this comprehensive treatment manual to any mental health clinician working on the front line with patients with sleep complaints. The authors have done a splendid job of crafting a new evidence-based treatment targeting sleep and circadian problems that are often central to a range of mental disorders, including anxiety, major affective, and schizophrenia spectrum disorders. The book provides a step-by-step, modular approach, with specific treatment modules targeting insomnia, nightmares, sleep scheduling problems in adolescents, and compliance issues with sleep apnea therapy."--Charles M. Morin, PhD, Professor of Psychology and Director, Sleep Research Center, Laval University, Quebec City, Canada

"This book is an excellent practical manual presenting a novel modular approach to subclinical and clinical insomnia and circadian rhythm disorders using the Transdiagnostic Sleep and Circadian Rhythm Intervention (TranS-C)....It provides comprehensive guidance and exemplars. The appendices provide a very useful range of handouts and other useful resources. This book is a must for all clinicians interested in the psychological aspects of sleep medicine. It is not only useful for those practicing sleep medicine but also for those working in mental health and managing long-term physical health conditions with comorbid sleep issues."--British Journal of Psychiatry
