Sound Sleep, Sound Mind is the first book of its kind to focus on all the causes – mental, emotional, and physical – that contribute to insomnia and poor sleep. Based on cutting-edge knowledge and research, this book explains why sleep problems are almost always a mind and body issue. It then guides you through the seven steps of Sleep Dynamic Therapy to identify and treat the specific problems that are at the root of your sleeplessness. You’ll discover that the Sleep Dynamic Therapy program not only improves your sleep quality, but also enhances many other aspects of your mental and physical well-being.
This short work of only 100 pages combines sleep hygiene and cognitive-behavioral therapy into a rapid fire treatment manual for insomniacs. We use it with all our insomnia patients before they even set foot in our sleep center. What we’ve learned is that most insomnia patients truly want to learn about sleep hygiene and CBT, but for some reason, the material has never been delivered to them properly. We are constantly complimented on how easily the book reads and how it motivates patients to make simple behavioral changes in their lifestyle. The single biggest corrective that follows from reading Insomnia Cures is the capacity to eliminate time monitoring behavior that fuels insomnia.

The book has been so successful, we now market it in bulk with extremely discounted prices. It works very well in the sleep center environment for those specialists who do not have a lot of time to spend with their insomnia patients. Some of these facilities resell the books while others have found the benefits so great in terms of time-savings, they provide the books to their insomnia patients at no cost.
Turning Nightmares Into Dreams
This very special work was written by Dr. Krakow and designed and edited by his wife, Jessica Kohr Krakow. It was originally designed as a definitive treatment manual for Imagery Rehearsal Therapy (IRT), the innovative nightmare treatment technique formally developed and tested by Robert Kellner, Joseph Neidhardt, Barry Krakow and Michael Hollifield at the University of New Mexico School of Medicine from 1987 through 2000.
More about the Workbook
The product consists of 4 hours of audio instruction provided by Dr. Krakow, accompanied by a pleasingly practical 100-page workbook. The program consists of 20 lessons, each one averaging about 10 minutes of audio and 5 pages of workbook. The workbook provides a series of steps, self-assessments, guides, recommendations and cautions on how to work to build your natural imagery system, and then how to apply that knowledge to use IRT to conquer disturbing dreams and nightmares. The most common buyers of the audio/workbook program are highly motivated nightmare or trauma patients who are eager to use a drug-free method to treat their bad dreams or mental health professionals who want to learn IRT.
What we’ve learned since we published the program in 2002 is that many other types of patients benefit from the program because of the advanced teaching it provides on the human imagery system. Using the formula of thoughts, feelings, and images (TFI System) that Dr. Krakow emphasizes throughout the Sound Sleep book, TNID provides even more direct work on the TFI System, which proves especially useful to insomnia patients and mental health patients who often have trouble accessing their imagery system successfully.
