Behavioral Sleep Medicine addresses behavioral dimensions of the fundamental scientific understanding of normal/healthy and abnormal/unhealthy sleep and wake mechanisms and regulation, and utilizes established behavioral principles to assess, treat, and prevent sleep disorders, sleep-related symptoms, and associated behavioral, emotional, cognitive, and physiological and mental health problems in children and adults. Research published in BSM across a variety of disciplines and from a broad set of perspectives and the dissemination of that evidence-based science, contribute to the body of knowledge in these areas, and is also applicable to public health and safety, policy making, and sleep education with the overall goal of improving quality of life through sleep. Target Audience: Psychologists, physicians, nurses, and other mental health and health-care researchers and clinicians and sleep health advocates interested in normal and disordered sleep from a behavioral/cognitive science, mind-body and biopsychosocial perspective.
