UM Researchers Seek Children Suffering From Nightmares for Study

Posted: Updated:
MISSOULA -

UM researchers said more than 5 million children in the U.S. experience trauma each year, causing children to deal with sleep issues and nightmares.

Now, researchers in UM's Clinical Psychology Program are trying to put a stop to this. They're currently looking for children who struggle with nightmares and sleep disturbances after suffering trauma for a treatment study. Researchers will test the effectiveness of Exposure, Relaxation, and Rescription therapy on the children, which has shown success on adults.

"We know for a lot of children exposed to very stressful experiences that sleep difficulty and night mares is a common occurrence, and some times it goes undetected, so we want to try to bring some awareness to that issue," said assistant professor for the Department of Psychology, Cameo Borntrager.

Participants must be 8-year-old to 13-years-old.  Call the lab at 406-243-6684 to see if your child is eligible.
