Saldaña KS, McGowan SK, Martin JL. Acceptance and Commitment Therapy as an Adjunct or Alternative Treatment to Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia. Sleep medicine clinics. 2023 Mar 1; 18(1):73-83.
Although cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBT-I) is an effective treatment of insomnia, difficulties exist with adherence to recommendations and premature discontinuation of treatment does occur. The current article aims to review existing research on acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT)-based interventions, demonstrate differences and similarities between ACT for insomnia and CBT-I, and describe treatment components and mechanisms of ACT that can be used to treat insomnia disorder.
