Understanding Dreams in Clinical Practice, Paperback / softback Book

Understanding Dreams in Clinical Practice Paperback / softback

Part of the The Society of Analytical Psychology Monograph Series series

Paperback / softback


This book presents a simple, effective and illuminating way of understanding and working with dreams in clinical practice.

It describes the mechanisms through which the mind/brain processes our experience and forms symbols, which embody a rich network of associations.

It demonstrates how the dream and this network of associations can apply on a number of levels and thus shows how the full richness and vital importance of dreams, their meanings and purposes, can be explored.

The book also explores the history, theory and science of dreams and dreaming.

It reviews the debates between, and contributions from, Freud, Jung and other psychoanalysts, as well as the developments and discoveries from neuroscientists and dream laboratories, bringing the subject right up to date.

Whilst the book primarily uses Jungian terminology, and highly values Jung's insights and approach to dreams, it gives a critical, contemporary account of the whole field of dream work and will be useful to practitioners of all theoretical persuasions.
