APS practice certificate in sleep psychology

The APS practice certificate in sleep psychology has been developed by the APS Institute in close collaboration with the Australasian Sleep Association (ASA). The content has been selected and assembled to enable psychologists and other sleep practitioners to gain knowledge of, and insight into, healthy and disordered sleep, including the assessment and management of the common sleep disorders. The APS practice certificate program consists of four component courses as follows:

  • Part 1: Introduction to sleep psychology
  • Part 2: Insomnia
  • Part 3: Circadian rhythm sleep disorder
  • Part 4: Obstructive sleep apnoea and CPAP adherence

Courses can be selected and taken individually although the APS Institute strongly recommends Part 1: Introduction to sleep psychology as basic preparation for the three remaining courses that make up the program. Persons who successfully complete a course will receive a certificate of completion for the course they have completed. Persons who successfully complete all four courses above will receive the APS practice certificate in sleep psychology to acknowledge their completion of this extended program of training.

Part 3: Circadian rhythm sleep-wake disorders

This course focuses on how the circadian timing system works in the normal healthy human and how things can go awry with the circadian timing system. Following completion of the course, participants will be able to: describe the 2-process model of sleep regulation; demonstrate awareness of how the circadian timing system works in a normal healthy human and how things can go array with the circadian timing system; describe the relationship between light and melatonin; demonstrate awareness of, and diagnose, the circadian rhythm sleep-wake disorders including, delayed sleep phase syndrome, advanced sleep phase syndrome, irregular sleep-wake type, and non-24-hour sleep-wake type; look at a series of sleep diaries and differentially diagnose insomnia, advanced sleep phase syndrome, delayed sleep phase syndrome, and non-24-hour circadian rhythm disorder; and finally plan appropriate non-drug treatment options for someone suffering with delayed sleep phase syndrome.
