This issue of the Journal of Clinical Psychology: In Session focuses on the treatment of insomnia and sleep disturbances in a variety of populations. Over the past decade, there has been an increased recognition of the importance of sleep to health and well-being. Despite this recognition, there continues to be a shortage of practitioners with experience in insomnia therapies. In this article, the authors identify and refute commonly held myths that might hinder the treatment of sleep problems. They conclude by introducing the seven articles that constitute this special issue.
