Narrative: The royal road to dreams has been undergoing repairs and there is a welcome shift toward direct engagement with dream imagery and narrative and away from formulaic interpreting. Your good observational skills and thoughtful questions are more than adequate to open a dream dialogue with clients. Using sample dreams from the instructor and participants, we will see how readily dreams come to life as we identify their main theme, the dreamer’s stance, dynamic tension, resources, and affects. Its meanings and purposes emerge naturally as these components are explored. This user-friendly approach also helps clients experience dreams as a personal resource with which they can engage on their own.

This study group will also cover the common metaphors by which therapy is represented in dreams and how these can help orient the work. Dream markers found to correlate with trauma, bipolarity, borderline, suicide risk, and psychosis will be noted. Emphasis is on how your own and clients’ dreams can become your consultant in any clinical setting, whether the modality is short-term or long; somatic, cognitive, affective, or relational. Clinicians of any experience level and orientation welcome.
