PTSD and Nightmares: Dream Revision Technique
As someone struggling with PTSD, you've probably had a nightmare or two that evokes either your direct traumatic experience or the feelings that went along with it.

Dream Revision Technique
After my trauma, I had the same recurring nightmare for years. During my PTSD recovery, that nightmare went through a series of evolutions. The story actually changed as my recovery progressed. Same type of dream; different story as I became more and more empowered, strengthened and whole.
