Why Work with Dreams

Dreams provide a direct portal into the unconscious realm and offer a deeply intimate and unique view into the psyche. Because dreams convey important unconscious material they deepen the interaction in the clinical setting. Consequently, incorporating dream material provides greater insight into the inner workings of the patient and demonstrates a remarkable ability to guide the therapeutic process.

Tips and Tools for Working with Dreams

While the art of listening and questioning is a primary skill for any form of generative interaction in the clinical setting, this is particularly true when working with dream material. The clinician is the tool or instrument that guides the process of revealing deeply personal information, historical references and narratives contained within the dream. In this module, focus will be placed on further developing and more finely attuning these exploratory skills with dream work.

TOPICS WE WILL COVER...

  • Digging Beneath the Surface

  • Revealing and Connecting Clinical Material within the Dream

  • Identification of Affect-Laden Material and Complexes

  • Psychoeducation and the Dream
