Abstract

This e-book is the only one published about the sleep of teenagers; written for parents, school counsellors, youth health workers, high school teachers and teenagers. It brings together a lot of things about sleep. It includes behaviours that can happen during sleep and discusses problems like night fears, wet dreams, scary dreams, sleep deprivation, snoring, needing too much sleep, not being able to get to sleep or stay asleep. Sleep walking, feelings of restless legs, being paralysed, midnight binge eating, the meaning of dreams and many other things are all covered. This e-book provides enough information to understand the key aspects of teenage sleep. This will allow you to judge how seriously to take a sleep problem and what you can expect. Some chapters and appendices include questionnaires to assess different aspects of sleep/wake behaviour. The resources are not restricted to be just about sleep but cover a wide range of issues that young people may experience while awake that can lead to problems with their sleep.
