Clinical depression can disrupt sleep patterns, and chronic insomnia contributes to the development of depressive symptoms in later life. This chapter supports providers as they help middle-aged and older adults to regulate sleep patterns and develop healthy sleep habits. Contents of this module provide psychoeducation about sleep to shape expectations and use circadian rhythms to support healthy sleep, build sleep debt, and reduce nighttime arousal. This chapter also describes the Practice forms provided in the workbook for clients’ use between psychotherapy and integrated primary care sessions to remember and use these skills. This chapter directs clinicians to apply recommended strategies that are responsive to the needs of culturally diverse aging clients, including within the context of telehealth.
