Abstract
The effectiveness of treatment programs based on progressive relaxation, stimulus control, and paradoxical intention was assessed in the context of sleep difficulties. The results indicated that each of the therapeutic procedures significantly reduced sleep complaints in contrast to placebo and waiting list control groups. No differences were observed among the three active techniques.
