In our previous research we found that CBT-I (Cognitive-Behavior Therapy for insomnia) cannot effectively improve sleep in patients with anxiety or depression. Actually, most of insomnia patients are co-morbid with anxiety and depression. So we find a new way to add some hypnotic elements in CBT-I to supplement the limitation of CBT-I. We collects some data, the analytic conclusion showed that hypnosis combined with CBT-I can effectively improve sleep quality and anxiety in insomnia patients. So, this presentation will show what is the specific procedure and clinical practice of this treatment model.
