Northern Virginia’s Brian Sharpless Interviewed by Boston Globe

Brian A. Sharpless, Ph.D., associate professor at the American School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University | Northern Virginia was recently interviewed for an article in the Boston Globe. Sharpless, an expert in sleep paralysis, discussed sleep terrors and causes. He mentions that eight percent of the general population and 32 percent of psychiatric patients had experienced sleep paralysis.

 

The article describes Sharpless’ first personal experience with sleep paralysis. “Sharpless, a clinical psychologist, had been studying the phenomenon for eight years. He knew what people in more than 100 different cultures call sleep paralysis, this sudden waking with an inability to move, the feeling that something is suffocating you, and visions of terrible things coming to get you.”
