Group Dreaming during Times of Extraordinary Private and Communal Stress
May 27 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Presented by Judith Hecker, Ph.D.
Discussants: Robert Moradi, M.D.; Sharon Heath, M.A., M.F.T.
Beginning in September 2001, a small group of candidates in training at the C. G. Institute of Los Angeles began meeting to discuss their dreams. Some of the themes that emerged included responses to the stress, fear, and anxiety resulting from the current political situation, how individuals respond to extreme personal and communal disturbance, and what analytical psychology has to offer in terms of dealing with current reality and our adaptive responses to it. We will also address how to apply the principles of small group dreaming to one’s clinical practice.
- Describe Jungian small group dreaming, including how to process individual dream material in the context of dream groups;
- Describe how to apply the principles of small group dreaming to clinical practice.
