About Dr. Jennifer Parker

I have been an active dream researcher for 17 years and I am currently researching women's nightmares. My research focus has been on the identification of different types of dreams, and exploration of these differing narratives. More recently, I have been nominated as one of the Directors of the Board for the IASD. My role is to act as Chair for the Membership Committee.
