  6. Traumatic Nightmares

    General Psychology
    What do you think about nightmares? Are they just bad dreams or an indication of trauma? What if the person doesn't know or doesn't think they've been abused or harmed? I ask this because I, periodically, have very upsetting dreams that affect the rest of my day. It usually involves a...
