About this item

This resource for clinicians, counselors, and students describes 14 established and emerging approaches for working with dreams in clinical settings. It can serve as a clinical dreamwork reference manual for professionals who want to use dreams in therapy with clients who have experienced or witnessed war, violence, physical or sexual assault, and manmade and natural disasters, including those in combat and first responders. The editors (Dream Studies Certificate Program, Saybrook University) gather academics, researchers, and practitioners in counseling, somatic therapy, hypnotherapy, transformative studies, transpersonal psychology, shamanism, and lucid dreaming. Contributors are affiliated with organizations including the California Institute of Integral Studies, the International Association for the Study of Dreams, and the New York Institute for Gestalt therapy. Chapters are devoted to 14 specific methods of dreamwork, including Jungian, psychodynamic, Gestalt, transpersonal, and cognitive-experiential dreamwork. Other methods discussed include the developmental life cycle method, the dream interview method, the five star method, and the Dream to Freedom Method. The book also provides advice on how to help clients remember and record dreams, plus an appendix on working with PTSD nightmares. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
