Abstract

The present study investigated the nightmare frequency of patients with insomnia. Patients reported more often nightmares, especially when overall dream recall frequency was statistically controlled. Moreover, nightmare frequency was related to the severity of insomnia complaints. It would be interesting to study whether specific techniques for treating nightmares (imagery rehearsal therapy) are beneficial for insomnia patients with nightmares.
