This study examined the link between bad dream frequency, associated distress, and psychosocial adjustment in 173 preadolescent children. Poor psychosocial adjustment was more strongly associated with distress over one’s bad dreams than with their actual frequency. Children’s reaction to disturbing dreams is thus an important predictor of their psychological well-being.
