Sleep complaints are extremely common in clinical practice. They may present as a clinical feature or symptom of another co-occurring disorder or may represent a sleep–wake disorder. There are multiple types of sleep–wake disorders, which may involve, for example, trouble sleeping at night (insomnia), problems with breathing during sleep (sleep apnea), or abnormal events during sleep (nightmares). This chapter focuses on the assessment of insomnia disorder in adults. It begins with a review of the nature of the disorder, which is followed by a review of clinical assessment instruments designed for the assessment purposes of (a) diagnosis, (b) case conceptualization and treatment planning, and (c) treatment monitoring and evaluation. Recommendations are included for instruments with the greatest scientific support and for assessing insomnia disorder in a clinically sensitive manner.
