This course will focus on working with dreams in clinical practice from a Jungian perspective. Some of the topics to be covered are dream images and the symbolic language of dreams, ways of working with dreams in the context of psychotherapy, as well as comparing types of dreams. We will also examine some of the differences between a Jungian approach and other psychoanalytic schools of thought. Participants are welcome to bring in a dream of their or from their practice in order that we might apply what was covered in class

- Explain the symbolic language of dreams and dream images.
- Give an example of how to apply the principles of working with dreams to clinical situations.
- Distinguish the Jungian approach to dreamwork from psychoanalytic approaches.
