Student Affairs Live - The Science of Sleep

March 20, 2019

How and why do we sleep? How does our sleep change across our life span? What are the implications of sleep deprivation on college students and how might that guide our practice? How has technology transformed our understanding of sleep? How do caffeine and alcohol work within the body to affect the quality of sleep? Are pills like melatonin and Ambien effective in providing healthful sleep? What is cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBT-I)? What are some tips and strategies to improve the quality of our sleep? Learn the answers to these questions and more as host Tony Doody interviews Dr. Brad Wolgast (Director of the Center for Counseling and Student Development at the University of Delaware).
