This book is a self-help guide for people with sleeping problems. It tells what they themselves can do to eliminate their problems in sleeping. Difficulty in sleeping is not something that must be passively accepted. Just as it is possible to learn to remain awake under special circumstances, it is possible to learn to sleep well again. Dr. Langen, Director of the Clinic and Polyclinic for Psychotherapy at the University Clinic of Mainz, bases his self-help program on these new medical findings.
Step 1: The reader becomes familiar with how the sleep-wakefulness mechanism functions, learns the workings of man’s biological clock, and the significance of dreams to sleep.
Step 2: Professor Langen explains how people with sleeping problems can liberate themselves from sleep medications in order to regain the ability to sleep.
Step 3: Various kinds of sleep disturbances, their causes, and treatments are clearly described in detail. By making a record of sleep habits and analyzing it, the patient finds out exactly which type of sleeper he is and can then initiate a planned program of treatment.
