This introductory workshop provides an overview of the principles and practice of imagery rehearsal therapy (IRT), which has been proven to be an effective way of treating nightmare disorders. Identifying the nature of the disorder — which affects those who have suffered trauma and many in the general population — as a primary sleep or psychiatric disorder and treating it properly can help reduce the severity of comorbid disorders such as anxiety, depression, PTSD and increased risk of suicide.

2. Identify and explain the major theories related to dreaming and nightmare disorder.
3. Identify and explain the concept, theory, and application of imagery rehearsal therapy (IRT).
