Dream Work in Clinical Practice
Course Description

Using the premise "only the dreamer knows the meaning of the dream," dream work becomes a process of inquiry, exploration, and not interpretation. Clinicians with no prior training in dreams can still effectively address clients' dreams. Working with nightmares can alleviate symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder and other psychological disturbances. Dreams can be diagnostic of psychological and even physical disorders, and be a forum for problem solving, creativity, and behavioral change. An overview of dream research, neuropsychology, and theories will be covered. Attendees can participate being in a dream group to practice specific techniques immediately applicable to their clinical practice.
