Sleep Awareness Online 2nd & 5th February 2021

Sleep Scotland has adapted its popular two-day Sleep Awareness course for online delivery. The course equips professionals with the skills to support families, carers, children & young people, by giving advice on sleep hygiene. As Sleep Advisors, delegates who attend this course will be able to offer support to children with sleep hygiene issues, while referring more complex cases to a fully trained sleep counsellor.

The training is structured specifically to meet the needs of professionals working with typically developing children in the health and social care field and is not suitable for private practitioners.

The course will be taught using lectures, exercises and online testing.

Day 1 will look at what sleep is, including patterns and processes and an introduction to childhood sleep disorders before outlining the behavioural approach.

Between Days 1 and 2, there will be some additional reading and an online test to confirm understanding.

Day 2 will cover bedtime routines, managing behaviour and interviewing parents before moving onto case study scenarios.

The course will run from 9.30am to 1pm on Tuesday 2nd February and 9.30am to 1pm on Friday 5th February with the reading and assessment between days expected to take 1-2 hours.

The cost of the course is £200 per delegate.
