My research covers 2 areas of study: 1) Sleep mentation (dreams and dreaming), and 2) Psychology of the Self. Research involves the theoretical underpinnings of these areas as well as their effectiveness in applied practice. For example, studies include decreasing nightmares and negative imagery related to severe illness; and examining the psychophysiological mechanisms of sleep mentation.
