University of Maryland Researchers Investigating Treatment for Combat-Related Nightmares
A new research study at the University of Maryland is investigating treatments for combat-related nightmares in OEF/OIF veterans. These nightmares can play havoc with veterans’ sleep patterns, which can make the transition to civilian life more difficult. By adapting the treatments to the needs of returning military personnel, we are investigating treatment effectiveness with the goal of improving and expanding the treatment options available to veterans. The study is NOT affiliated with the Department of Defense or the Veterans Administration. The treatment, which is completely free of cost, involves 8 weekly sessions, which will be conducted with experienced therapists in the counseling psychology program at the University of Maryland. If you or someone you know is dealing with combat-related nightmares and sleep-loss and would like more information, please contact Dr. Patricia Spangler, University of Maryland, College Park, at email@example.com or by calling 301-919-2271.
