Join us as Dr Shane Pascoe discusses his new book Sleep Better : The Science and the Myths.

Dr Shane Pascoe is a psychologist with 20 years of experience helping people with a variety of issues often involving sleep problems. His gentle, questioning approach has benefitted many people in his thriving psychology practice. With a young family, sleep is the one area of Shane’s life that influences all other areas determining mood, energy and temperament.

In his latest book, Sleep Better, Shane explores the myths surrounding sleep. Some of these myths are informative and helpful, some incorrect and some positively damaging and counterproductive.

The book covers 40 myths of sleep that form the basis for most sleep behaviour, and top tips for sleeping better.

Copies of the book will be for sale at the event.
