Therapy for sleep or insomnia disorders usually focus on re-framing behaviors, becoming more self-aware, setting and achieving goals, developing healthy coping strategies, and learning relaxation skills. Upon the discovery of the root cause of the problem, mental health experts can help clients develop more positive skills in order to change unwanted sleep patterns for the better. Insomnia is typically treated with a specific type of cognitive behavioral therapy, CBT-I. This form of CBT endeavors to alter a client's sleep schedule and sleep habits while attempting to resolve misconceptions that may lead to difficulty sleeping. A large part of the therapy process is maintaining a diary of regular sleeping patterns in order to track progress with the therapist.
