Posttraumatic stress disorder

A client diagnosed with posttraumatic stress disorder is readmitted for suicidal thoughts and continued trouble sleeping.  She states that when she closes her eyes, she has vivid memories of being awakened at night.  “My dad would be on top of me trying to have sex with me. I couldn’t breathe.”  Which suggestions would be appropriate for the nurse to make for insomnia?
