The Gallipoli Medical Research Foundation has launched their latest study investigating Cognitive Behaviour Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I) and Imagery Rehearsal Therapy (IRT) for nightmares for ex-serving Australian Defence Force personnel with PTSD and disturbed sleep.

We are seeking ex-service personnel to complete 8 weekly sessions of either CBT-I or CBT-I with IRT. The program will be free of charge and aims to improve sleep quality. The program will be delivered by a trained psychologist at Greenslopes Private Hospital.

What is cognitive behavioural therapy for insomnia (CBT-I)?
This type of therapy targets problematic thoughts and behaviours associated with insomnia, and includes components such as education about sleep and sleep hygiene, sleep efficiency training, improving thoughts about sleep, and relaxation training.

What is imagery rehearsal therapy (IRT)?
IRT is a psychological treatment for nightmares that involves targeting and altering a recurrent nightmare through imagery and rescripting to change or remove its disturbing aspects.

This study is seeking individuals who are:
  • Ex-service members with PTSD
  • Experience insomnia/poor sleep
  • Experience nightmares

  • Please indicate which option is most relevant to you:
