Washington, DC Office
The Ross Center is offering a 12-week group for licensed doctoral- and masters-level therapists seeking consultation, training, and skills development in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I) and behavioral sleep medicine (BSM). Consultees will have the opportunity to present and ask questions about their own cases as well as learn about the cases of other group members. The group will meet in-person weekly for 90 minutes starting in September 2018 at The Ross Center located in Washington, DC. Consultees are expected to commit to the entire 12 weeks which has a total fee of $1080. Your clinical experience in consultation through this group will count towards BSM credentialing criteria. CEU’s for psychologists may be available. The program will be led by Virginia Runko, PhD, CBSM.
