Cognitive restructuring

Cognitive restructuring challenges faulty beliefs which maintain wakefulness and the helplessness which many insomniacs report. It appears to work through appraisal by testing the validity of assumptions against evidence and real-life experience. As an evaluative technique, it may be effective with beliefs that are irrational but compelling. If such thoughts, for example 'I am going to be incapable at work tomorrow', are not challenged, they will create high levels of preoccupation and anxiety and sleep is unlikely to occur. With cognitive restructuring, the insomniac learns alternative responses to replace inaccurate thinking.
