Sleepless in Örebro : Effects from Cognitive Therapy with Behavioural Experiments on Youths with Primary Insomnia (English)
Abstract [sv]

Sömnsvårigheter hos ungdomar är ett växande problem i Sverige men det saknas forskning om behandlingsmetoder för åldersgruppen. Syftet med studien var att testa kognitiv terapi med beteendeexperiment (KT-I) på gymnasieungdomar med primär insomni. Studien genomfördes enligt en Single Subject design med för- och eftermätning. Tre ungdomar i åldern 16-18 genomgick en sju veckor lång behandling efter 1-2 veckors baslinjemätning. Resultatet visade att svårighetsgrad av insomni minskade, att funktionsförmågan dagtid förbättrades och behandlingsmålen uppfylldes i hög grad. Dagliga mätningar visade att förändring av sömnrelaterade symtom och dagtidssymtom varierade mellan deltagarna. Graden av vidmakthållande kognitiva processvariabler minskade. Slutsatser som kan dras är att KT-I är en lovande behandlingsmetod för ungdomar med insomni och att metoden bör testas ytterligare i randomiserade kontrollerade studier.

Abstract [en]

Sleeping difficulties are an increasing problem in Sweden for youths today, but there is a lack of research on treatments for this age group. The aim of the study was to investigate the effects from Cognitive Therapy with Behavioural Experiments (CT-I) on youths with primary insomnia in upper secondary school. The study was conducted according to a Single-Subject design with pre- and posttests. Three youths between the ages of 16-18 participated in a seven week long treatment, after 1-2 weeks of baseline measures. The results showed that the degree of insomnia decreased, that the ability to function during daytime increased, and that the treatment goals were met to a large extent. Daily measures showed that changes in sleep related symptoms and daytime symptoms varied among the participants. The degree of maintaining cognitive processes decreased. The conclusions that can be drawn are that CT-I is a promising treatment for youths with insomnia and that the method should be tested further in randomized controlled studies.
