An interest in the nonpharmacological management of chronic insomnia led to the establishment of a treatment group in which occupational therapists have been involved. The outcome data from seven groups are presented. Sleep diaries indicate a modest improvement in total sleep time, with further improvement at 3-month follow-up. Participant feedback shows that people with insomnia value expert advice and support as well as meeting others with similar problems. Additional research and evaluation are planned, but these findings suggest that the programme should be developed further. It is argued that the management of insomnia is an appropriate area of concern for occupational therapists.
