Sleep Can Help People to Cope with a Traumatic Event
For the study, two groups of participants watched a video with traumatic images. One group slept for the night after watching it, and another group stayed awake. Participants from both groups recorded their memories during several days after watching video.
Birgit Kleim, a study author and a clinical psychological scientist in the department of psychiatry, psychotherapy and psychosomatics at the University of Zurich, says: “Our results reveal that people who slept after the film had fewer and less distressing recurring emotional memories than those who were awake.”
