Case #6

Contributers: Paige, Riki, Laura

In this situation we would try to get as much information about her routine and experience and try to find a way to calm the girl’s storyteller.  One way we could do this is to try and talk her through her experience of believing someone is sitting on her chest, and trying to help her experience what is happening in a less frightening way.  We recommend having her keep a sleep journal so she can recall if she was stressed before this happens, and trying to recognize a pattern of behavior so she can come to a new understanding of her experience and create a new story.
