Reply To: Physical attacks by dad without provocation; how do handle these?



Has your Dad had a psychological or psychiatric evaluation? Is he seeing a psychiatrist on a regular basis? He should be monitored very closely and getting therapy to prevent these episodes. This is a very serious matter. Does he have a history of trauma, for example being a War Veteran or being in some other traumatic event? Also, look for a sleep disorder specialist in your area that can help identify the source of these night terrors.
