The intervention involved asking participants to recall vividly positive events of the day just before going to sleep. The results showed that the intervention led to a significantly lower level of unpleasant dreams in the experimental group the night after the intervention than in a waiting list control. The results indicate that the low-cost, easily disseminated intervention is worthy of further evaluation to determine whether the effects endure over time and whether the effects extend to children and to individuals who have PTSD.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||International Journal of Dream Research, 13(1), p. 115-118||Publisher:||Central Institute of Mental Health||Place of Publication:||Germany||ISSN:||1866-7953||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal|
