SBSM Promotion of Member Professional Activities

As a part of its mission, the Society of Behavioral Sleep Medicine (SBSM) seeks to support the professional growth and activity of its members. To that end, the Executive Committee and the Board of Directors have established the following guidelines for SBSM promotion of member professional activities and training.


At the request of members, the Society of Behavioral Sleep Medicine will post information regarding member professional announcements, activities, and events. All requests are subject to review and approval by the SBSM Executive Committee. The following activities are eligible for submission:

1. Training, faculty and clinical positions;
2. BSM clinical supervision and consultation opportunities;
3. Educational classes, seminars and workshops offering review of research, training in evidence-based practice, and symposia, discussion groups or other activities that seek to advance the field;
4. Publication of BSM scientific or clinical books and manuals.

Activities within these categories upon review will be placed on the SBSM website, noted in the SBSM newsletter, posted on Facebook and/or announced via email to our network of communities. The SBSM typically will announce or post items with a header, brief description and a link provided by the member for more detailed information. The SBSM does not release or distribute its mailing lists to members or third parties. Members may elect to opt out the receipt of these promotions by contacting the SBSM at

If a member wishes to have the SBSM post information about a position, professional activity or event, please contact the SBSM Executive Director, Kathryn Hansen at Please provide a detailed summary of position postings or clinical/educational offering. All position postings must include an application deadline.
