An Analysis of Intractable Nightmares in a Two-Year Old Boy.
This paper discusses a case study of therapeutic intervention with a 2-year-old boy. The child's major presenting symptom is intractable insomnia caused by nightmares, but his problems are linked to general patterns resulting from early paternal loss. The report analyzes the first 30 sessions of treatment. Discussion focuses on the unusual durability of the symptom, technical problems encountered during therapy, and implications for preventive psychiatry. (DP)
