Most people who have experienced a nightmare find that this is an isolated event. The long-term outcome is generally good. If nightmares occur frequently over several months or follow a traumatic event, evaluation by a psychologist or psychotherapist is indicated.
Nightmares are not associated with sleepwalking or other parasomnias (disruptive sleep disorders).
