Sleep Awareness Training – November 2019 – Glasgow


Sleep Scotland now offers a two day sleep awareness course, which enables professionals to support families by giving advice on sleep hygiene. As sleep support workers, delegates who attend this course will be able to offer support to mainstream children while complex cases will need to be referred to a fully trained sleep counsellor.

The aims of the course are as follows:

  • to give participants a good knowledge of sleep hygiene and sleep processes.
  • to gain an introduction to the principles of cognitive behavioural management.

Cost: £250 (inc. VAT)

This course will be held on 11th & 12th November 2019 in Glasgow.
