Training - Canadian Institute for Public Safety Research and Treatment
The Canadian Institute for Public Safety Research (CIPSRT) is excited to announce the release of multiple ER2MR, Treatment 101 and Sleep 101 course offerings. These courses are free of charge and available to Public Safety Personnel (PSP).
Sleep 101: Poor sleep can impact your physical and mental health. Research has shown in samples of public safety personnel (PSP) that the majority reported symptoms consistent with insomnia, and PSP consistently get less sleep than the general population (Angehrn et al., 2020; Cramm et al., 2021). Research has also shown that structured sleep education provided to PSP can help improve their sleep (Nakada, Sugimoto, Kadotani, & Yamada, 2017; Sullivan et al., 2021). Given the increased understanding of the importance of sleep to both mental and physical health, CIPSRT has partnered with Dr. Colleen Carney, Director of the Sleep and Depression Laboratory at Toronto Metropolitan University, to develop a sleep course for PSP.
