Posted on April 18, 2018

Congrats to Dr. Alwin Wagener (CED) for receiving new funding for the project “A New Lens on Dreams and Nightmares: Differences in Dreams and Nightmares in Relation to Posttraumatic Stress Disorder and Insomnia among Survivors of Intimate Partner Violence,” from the DreamScience Foundation. 

The objective of this study is to understand whether the occurrence of repeating nightmares, non-repeating nightmares, and dreams among survivors of intimate partner violence is consistent with a view that these types of dream experiences are differentially related to PTSD and Insomnia as suggested by the AMPHAC/AND Neurocognitive Model and the Contemporary Theory of Dreaming.
