About this workshop
This sleep workshop has been modified from the original CBTi workshop that has historically been delivered as a 2.5-day workshop offered through Colorado State University.
This current one-day workshop covers foundational knowledge regarding sleep and insomnia, the why’s behind sleep’s importance to our daily lives and society, basics of CBTi delivery, and strategies to improve sleep across practice settings and client populations.
This workshop will get you started on your journey, or push you along on an already started journey, of sleep training and practice. You should anticipate that you will have lots more self-study after this workshop, but this workshop will be a giant leap in the right direction if you are considering working in, or expanding, your role in behavioral sleep health and chronic insomnia.
- Describe the importance of sleep and why we should be talking to our clients about it
- Identify why it is important to understand the physiology of sleep & substances that affect sleep
- Describe the role of your profession in treating sleep challenges/using CBTi-what do you need to practice sleep?
- Identify the key components of CBTi and demonstrate a basic understanding of how to use this intervention
- Demonstrate an understanding of how daily activities, roles, habits, routines, daily balance, stress management, planning, diet, and exercise all influence our sleep quality and quantity.

About the Instructor
Natalie Rolle has been helping people sleep using non-drug methods since 2015 when she began working with student Veterans at Colorado State University (CSU) at the Center for Community Partnerships. An important part of helping Veterans have successful higher education outcomes was the Restoring Effective Sleep Tranquility (REST) program that uses cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBTI). Natalie spends most of her time supporting Veterans with chronic insomnia to achieve better sleep quality resulting in improved daytime functioning and quality of life.
Natalie (MOT OTR/L) earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Biology with an organismal concentration from (CSU) in 2012 graduating cum laude. Natalie then went on to complete her Master’s Degree in Occupational Therapy (OT) from CSU in 2014. Subsequently she was trained in CBTI at the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine in both basic and advanced courses. Natalie began seeing additional clients at Northern Colorado Sleep Consultants, LLC in early 2018 where she was trained by Dr. Moorcroft in another behavioral treatment for insomnia called guided mindfulness meditation with acceptance treatment for insomnia (GMATI). This added to her experience of working with mindfulness and meditation since 2015
Natalie has multiple publications as well as given numerous presentations locally, nationally, and internationally.
She uses the same behavioral methods for insomnia and sleep-related problems as Dr. Moorcroft and enjoys working with all people in addition to veterans.
