Dr. Michael J. Breus, The Sleep Doctor
Wednesday, March 21, 2018
Michael J. Breus, Ph.D., is a Clinical Psychologist and both a Diplomate of the American Board of Sleep Medicine and a Fellow of The American Academy of Sleep Medicine.

Partners affect one another’s sleep. Parents influence and shape their children’s sleep lives. Children impact how, where, when and the amount their parents sleep. It’s a good strategy to have sleep goals not only for individuals, but also for the family as a whole. These goals will change over time, as children grow and develop and as adults age. Sleep is dynamic, and keeping up with its changing needs and challenges is one important way to ensure healthy sleep for every family member. Dr. Breus comes to CEE to help parents understand how to best support their children’s sleep and improve family sleep overall.
