The Relationship of Neuroticism with Sleep Quality: The Mediating Role of Emotional, Cognitive and Metacognitive Factors
This study aimed to investigate the mediating role of metacognitive beliefs related to sleep, emotion regulation and a negative cognitive style related to anxiety (looming cognitive style) in the relation between neuroticism and reported sleep quality. Participants: Participants were 343 undergraduates from three universities in Tehran (56.3% females, Mean age = 22.01 ± 2.74 years). Method: Data were gathered with a questionnaire packet that included the Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI), Metacognitions Questionnaire-Insomnia (MCQ-I), Emotion Regulation Questionnaire (ERQ), Looming Maladaptive Style Questionnair...

Dissociative Symptoms are Highly Prevalent in Adults with Narcolepsy Type 1
Behav Sleep Med. 2021 Feb 17:1-11. doi: 10.1080/15402002.2021.1888729. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTIntroduction: The core symptoms of narcolepsy such as excessive daytime sleepiness and cataplexy are well known. However, there is mounting evidence for a much broader symptom spectrum, including psychiatric symptoms. Disordered sleep has previously been linked with dissociative symptoms, which may imply that patients with narcolepsy are more prone to develop such symptoms. Objectives: To investigate the frequency of dissociative symptoms in adult patients with narcolepsy type 1 compared to population controls. Methods: In ...

The Moderating Role of Sleep Quality on the Association between Neuroticism and Frontal Executive Function in Older Adults.
Conclusions: Our findings demonstrated that higher sleep quality has significant moderating effects on the negative association between neuroticism and frontal executive functions in older adults, which suggests intervention for improving sleep quality such as cognitive behavioral therapy can be considered in older adults who have personality traits associated with a high risk of cognitive impairment.

Reducing Barriers to Behavioral Treatments for Insomnia: A Qualitative Examination of Veterans' Perspectives of BBTI.
Conclusions: BBTI was successful in overcoming barriers to behavioral insomnia treatment and interviews identified critical treatment aspects that should be maintained to preserve acceptability (e.g., in-person session first). Areas in which BBTI did not fully meet the needs of veterans and targets for improvement (e.g., ameliorating understanding and expectations of phone sessions) were also identified.

Sleep Education and Training among Practicing Clinical Psychologists in the United States and Canada.
Discussion: Many clinical psychologists engaged in active patient care have received minimal formal sleep training. Despite this, they felt prepared to evaluate and treat sleep disorders. Their treatment recommendations were not aligned with evidence-based standards. This may result in a delay to, or absence of, effective treatment for patients, underscoring the critical need for sleep training among clinical psychologists. It is essential to improve sleep competencies for the field. PMID: 33336599 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: Behavioral Sleep Medicine)

Perception versus Reality: The Relationship between Subjective and Objective Measures of Sleep When On-call under Simulated Laboratory Conditions.
CONCLUSIONS: Some objective measures of sleep were associated with subjective estimates of sleep duration and sleep quality. However, individuals may overestimate sleep onset latency and underestimate sleep duration during on-call periods. It may be beneficial for on-call workers to actively reflect on feelings of fatigue/alertness for workplace fatigue management, rather than relying solely on estimates of sleep.
