Treatment of sleep disturbances in posttraumatic stress disorder: A review

Frank B. Schoenfeld, MD, et al.

Poor sleep is a common problem for people who have posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Treatments have been developed to treat nightmares and problems in getting a full night–s sleep. Clinicians across the United States are being trained to give these treatments. These treatments help people with PTSD learn special skills to help improve their sleep and make their nightmares less frequent and frightening. Medication can also help if the skills training does not give all the relief that is needed. This article reviews the progress that has been made to help people with sleep problems from PTSD.
