Psychological treatments for sleep-maintenance insomnia have received little attention in the literature. Problems with staying asleep are commonplace, however, especially in the older age groups, and there is a need to develop effective management alternatives to night-time sedation. This single case report describes the sequential application of two cognitive interventions with treatment effects being evaluated by means of time series analysis. The mental overarousal model of sleep disturbance is discussed. © 1987, British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies. All rights reserved.
