People with schizophrenia often experience insomnia yet Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I) is rarely offered. This doctoral work used qualitative approaches to better understand the lived experience and treatment preferences of sleep problems in schizophrenia which culminated in the development of an adapted CBT-I program. The program was found to be effective in real-world clinical settings. Latent class analysis also led to the discovery of different sleep profiles and differential treatment responses. Altogether, this thesis highlighted the value of seeking consumer perspectives in intervention development, and the importance of offering psychological therapy for insomnia in people with psychosis.
