Nightmares: Causes, Correlates, and Treatments +

Michael R. Nadorff, PhD

Nightmares are associated with a wide range of psychopathology beyond post-traumatic stress disorder including anxiety, depression, borderline personality disorder, and suicidality.  Further, they are prevalent, with between 2-6 percent of the U.S. population reporting clinically-significant nightmares.  Despite this, they are usually not identified by mental health professionals or treated.  This session will discuss the phenomenon of nightmares, their correlates, and Imagery Rehearsal Therapy, which is the leading psychotherapy for the treatment of nightmare disorder and post-traumatic nightmares.
