    Good morning , Kaitlin Vogel, That is a brilliant essay, and resonates with me; not often, but I have had occasional nightmares, such as being
    stuck in a snow drift and I struggled to get out, but I awoke and so relieved to be in my bed. I’ve studied clinical psychology for many years, the works of Sigmund Freud, Carl Jung, Karen Horney, M. Scott, and the best , I think, was Viktor Frankl his Logo Therapy. is way beyond the others. Cordially, Bob Foy

    This was very interesting and something I have been attempting to find out more about.
    We recently had one of our clients who had a bad dream/nightmare and the staff woke her up. I have been trying to see if this the correct way of handling bad dreams/nightmares. I did find 1 article that said to only intervene when and if someone is trashing so intensely that it may result in injury.
    Did you find any guidelines for bad dreams/nightmares. Thanks
