About the Method

The Gentle Sleep Coach Program is the first and most extensive professional sleep coach training and certification program available. The program involves over 80 hours of training with a faculty panel that includes 2 medical doctors, a psychologist, an attorney, lactation counselor, postpartum doulas and a family therapist. Each coach must pass an exam and participate in case supervision with Kim West, LCSW-C (a.k.a. “the Sleep Lady”) who has been helping tired parents for over 17 years. Clinical supervision and ongoing advanced training are required to maintain certification as a Gentle Sleep Coach. Some of my training topics included:
–  Basic counseling and child development
–  Sleep science and behavioral modification techniques to help parents of children age 0 to 6 years old.
–  Secure attachment theory
–  Support for the breastfeeding mother
The training also consisted of lectures from top specialists, including:
–  Postpartum Depression from Dr Shoshana Bennett, author and leading specialist on Postpartum Depression
–  Medical Conditions and Sleep Apnea in Children led by Dr Lewis Kass, Director of Children’s Sleep Center
–  GURD and Sleep led by Dr Anthony Loizides, pediatric gastroentrologist
