    Abstract

    The efficacy of Bright Light Therapy for Delayed Sleep
    Wake Phase Disorder (DSWPD) is contingent upon an accurate
    clinical assessment of circadian phase. However, the process of
    determining this circadian phase can be costly and not yet readily
    available in clinical setting. The present study investigated whether
    more cost-effective estimates of circadian phase, such as self-
    reported sleep timing, can be used to predict circadian phases and
    guide the timing of light therapy in a sample of DSWPD.
