ERRT Treatment Manual
The treatment manual for ERRT was published through the Springer Publishing Company in 2008. For reviews, samples, and purchasing information Click Here.
Treating Post-Trauma Nightmares presents the only interdisciplinary treatment that brings together literature, theory, and techniques from sleep medicine and psychological perspectives: Exposure, Relaxation, and Rescripting Therapy (ERRT).
This groundbreaking treatment specifically targets chronic nightmares experienced by trauma-exposed persons. An empirically based book, Treating Post-Trauma Nightmares discusses the nature and characteristics of trauma-related nightmares, and serves as a guide to clinicians treating patients with PTSD or other trauma- and sleep-related disorders. Davis explores and outlines the treatment process, step-by-step, for those interested in the utilization and evaluation of ERRT.
This manual uses a three session structure. Dr. Davis and her team of researchers has changed the protocol to take five sessions. If you are interested in receiving this manual of ERRT, you will need to participate in a training. More information regarding ERRT trainings can be found here.
