Insomnia appears to be fundamental for human beings, as 50% of the total human populations suffers from this disease. College students are among the most affected ones, especially those who undergo dyspepsia gastritis. One of the efforts made to decrease insomnia is applying Islamic-Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (Islamic-CBT) which combines Islamic approach to a popular conventional psychological approach, namely Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. The study aims to explore the effectiveness of Islamic-CBT in decreasing insomnia among college students with dyspepsia gastritis. The subjects are 30 college students who suffer dyspepsia gastritis. Insomnia among the subjects is determined by Insomnia Severity Index (ISI) by Morin (2002). The data analysis was conducted by ANOVA mixed statistical design to determine the difference between treatment and control groups during Pre-test, Post-test 1, and Post-test 2. The results of the study indicate that Islamic-CBT is effective in decreasing insomnia among college students with dyspepsia gastritis.
