This is the first truly comprehensive and reliable source of information on the subject of night terrors. Prior to our in-depth study, there have been no books devoted exclusively to the subject because current professional night terror understandings barely fill a page or two of sleep disorder books, and even this sparse information is vague, contradictory and often erroneous.
         Banishing Night Terrors and Nightmares debunks the general perception that night terrors are related to genetics, proves their true origins through the latest studies, and provides both professionals and parents with guidelines to determine if an adult or child is suffering from the short-term childhood type or the more serious lifelong variety of night terrors, or if he or she is simply suffering from nightmares. Our book corrects many common misconceptions and most importantly, offers workable solutions for these distinct types of sleep disorders.
