No.: Cbt can also be useful for depression that is not associated with sleep changes.

CBT has many targets: For therapy. Developed to use behavior as the window of the mind, cbt looks at behavior and works on ways to change that behavior without neccessarily trying to develop insight into the subconscious mind, doing so tends to make it very targeted and some think more efficient at correcting problem behaviors of all kinds.
