SHUTi in the New York Times

August 18, 2009

On Tuesday, August 11, the New York Times published an article about the potential of online interventions successfully treating insomnia. The article, written by Amanda Schaffer, describes two studies using web-based programs to treat insomnia--SHUTi, created by our team here at UVA, and another interactive program led by Dr. Norah Vincent at the University of Manitoba. Others commented on the promising findings, and emphasized the need for programs like SHUTi for those with sleep disorders and limited access to care. Both Drs. Ritterband and Vincent spoke of making their programs available to the public in the future.
