As a Certified Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia Instructor I help people fall asleep more quickly, spend less time awake during the night, and get more sleep without the sleeping pills. This treatment works because it addresses the underlying thoughts and behaviors that cause insomnia.

I discovered this article that goes into great depth on what trauma is, how trauma can be expressed, how it impacts sleep, plus tips and resources for coping.
