Behavioral Sleep Medicine is a growing specialty where clinicians focus on evaluating and treating sleep disorders by addressing behavioral, psychological, and physiological factors that interfere with sleep. Research continually shows these treatments are safer, more effective, and more durable than sleep medications. Two certifications denote those clinicians who have met the highest standards of training and passed a comprehensive board examination (Diplomate in Behavioral Sleep Medicine (DBSM) and Certified in Behavioral Sleep Medicine (CBSM). Clinicians with both designations have typically been in the specialty the longest.
