Abstract:Insomnia is ranked as the most common sleep disorder among adolescents and recent studies even indicate an increase in the prevalence of insomnia. The most recommended and promising treatment for insomnia in adults and adolescents is the Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Insomnia (CBTI). This study focuses on the CBTI element mindfulness-based relaxation training (MBSR) in the form of Body Scan exercises. Body Scan itself has been proven to be an effective treatment for insomnia but there is a lack of research on which added value Body Scan has as part of a CBTI treatment for adolescents. The purpose of this study is to investigate, if engagement in self-help online relaxation exercises as part of a CBTI treatment has positive effects on sleep-related outcome variables (HSDQi and actigraphy) of the participants.
