Grad Dr. David Cooper Featured in CNN Article on Battling Nightmares

Sleep issues can impact over half of veterans returning from war, according to American School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University | Northern Virginia graduate Dr. David Cooper. He was recently featured on cnn.com for his experience in helping veterans to overcome sleep problems. Cooper, who earned a Master of Arts in Clinical Psychology in 2008 and Doctor of Psychology in Clinical Psychology in 2011, works with traumatized veterans at the Department of Defense National Center for Telehealth and Technology.

"Over half all veterans have nightmares," he stated in the article. "It's a common symptom that comes along with PTSD, or post-traumatic stress syndrome."

He utilizes image rehearsal therapy to help his patients through situations. "When I'm working with a patient with PTSD one of the things I want them to do is expose themselves to those traumatic feelings over and over again so that their body learns to calm down and not react as much," he said within the article. "But traumatic nightmares are not treated the same way as other PTSD symptoms. Instead we give something new for the brain to focus on which eventually reduces the overall frequency of the nightmares."

Northern Virginia’s Brian Sharpless Quoted in Story on Exploding Head Syndrome

Northern Virginia’s Brian Sharpless Quoted in Story on Exploding Head Syndrome

Professor Brian Sharpless, instructor, the American School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University | Northern Virginia, was recently quoted in the Time Magazine article, “What It’s Like to Have Exploding Head Syndrome.” The syndrome occurs as a person is falling asleep. They typically hear a loud noise, explosion of sound, then see a flash of light.

Sharpless, who has led studies on Exploding Head Syndrome (EHS), explained that as people fall asleep, their auditory and visual neurons are normally inhibited. “What we think happens during EHS is that instead of shutting down, these neurons fire all at once,” he said. “When they do, they create a perception of sound, which is why sufferers hear the loud noises."
