PEP Web’s vast psychoanalytic literature archive contains no articles on parasomnia, and no mention of the violent parasomnias. There is a potentially rich confluence between the study of these states of simultaneous sleep/wakefulness, and the psychoanalytic investigation of dreams. This contribution illustrates how these fields of inquiry can be brought together to significantly augment our comprehension of very important phenomena. These matters are insufficiently understood in mental health and legal disciplines, and in public discourse. Psychoanalytic perspectives on dreaming and sleep disorders have much to contribute to psychology, psychiatry, neuroscience, sleep medicine, and the law.
