QCS REOPENING PLAN


Working hard to be together again soon!

“I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.” - Philippians 1:6

Ask QCS teachers why they teach and one answer will be consistent. “THE STUDENTS.” Being a community and working together is one of the benefits of being a part of QCS. We look forward to mornings with students playing soccer on the field. Children playing on the elementary playground. Secondary students sitting together, talking, laughing and some of them even...studying! We look forward to teachers in classrooms carrying out the QCS Mission Statement: “QCS will provide the best possible US accredited education where students learn to understand, interpret and analyze the world from a biblically integrated point of view.” More than anything else we desire to be together again.

The principle goal of QCS is to take the necessary steps to make coming together on campus a reality. We believe the QCS Hybrid Plan is the best model to getting all students back on campus five days a week. Our current policies and procedures are not exhaustive. Updates will be needed as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to develop.

Why treat insomnia?


  • Insomnia Disorder is a major health problem, epidemic in its prevalence
  • Insomnia, once it is chronic, impacts all aspects of daily living, and quality of life
  • Insomnia is not just a symptom of other comorbidities, but is also a risk factor for wide ranging medical and behavioral health morbidity including:
    • Depression
    • Anxiety
    • Cardiovascular disease
    • Diabetes
    • Obesity
  • If left untreated insomnia can complicate the treatment of:
    • Depression
    • Anxiety
    • PTSD
    • Chronic pain
    • Cancer




Why learn CBT-I?


  • Overwhelming evidence has accumulated over the past three decades showing that CBT-I is as effective for treating insomnia as hypnotic medication in the short run, and better at maintaining gains in the long run

  • CBT-I is not only effective for primary insomnia, but is effective even when insomnia is comorbid with other medical and behavioral health disorders

  • CBT-I can have substantial beneficial impact on disorders ranging from depression, anxiety, PTSD, chronic pain and immune function

  • It is becoming clear that CBT-I needs to be considered a trans-diagnostic therapy and should be in the tool box of every health care clinician

  • Unfortunately, there are not enough well trained CBT-I providers to meet this public health challenge. That is why it is our mission to train the next generation of providers to meet this need.




Why seek consulting?


  • This is how we learned to do therapy in the first place, not just with classes but with supervision.

  • For those new to CBT-I and behavioral sleep medicine (BSM), consultation helps to:

    • To learn valuable new skills through practice and feedback

    • Build on skills learned in workshops; consulting is a proven method to learn new evidence based therapies and make them a part of your expanding scope of practice.

  • For clinicians already more seasoned at CBT-I and other BSM skills, consultation helps to:

    • Work through a particularly difficult case

    • Gain new perspective

    • Hone your skills

    • Expand your practice of BSM
