Articulatory suppression and the treatment of insomnia.
The prominence of intrusive thoughts in insomnia suggests the relevance of cognitive techniques to control them. It is suggested that the technique of Articulatory Suppression derived from Baddeley's model of Working Memory provides a relevant approach. The technique is presented as it was developed with a preliminary uncontrolled case series. A single-case experiment is then reported in which Articulatory Suppression was compared with other techniques. The preliminary indications are that it may be particularly helpful for sleep maintenance problems.
